Can we finalize time for the meeting.

Is Tuesday 20 July (3-4pm) okay for all? If not, please suggest another date and time.

With the exception of last thing on Monday 19th, these dates are all fine with me as well. Would people be happier with IRC or some sort of teleconference?

also talked about having a call (personal preference) or IRC chat soon
to keep the momentum going, and to maybe formalise some roles, follow up
on the issues below etc. Probably worth doing that in July if we can
before hols kick in, and to prepare for the AGI conference in September
- how about 26th as a suggestion? Antony Scott Tel: +44/0 1934 838676

1) People felt that the name "local chapter" was not really appropriate
for a UK audience, so we're going with OSGeo:UK as the proper title. We
have permission to create a new logo (within certain limitations) so we
will discuss that shortly. What about our logo? Cheers Saber

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8 Dear All, As you're no doubt
aware, the 2nd OSGIS event was held at the University of Nottingham
Centre for Geospatial Sciences, and by all accounts it was a big
success. Thanks to everyone who attended both days, or who presented.
Thanks also to everyone who attended the 2nd AGM of the UK local
chapter. Finally- hi to anyone who's new to the list. A brief summary of
the AGM:

2) We have a couple of new people looking to be more deeply involved in
the chapter- so welcome Matt Walker as our training coordinator and Mike
Saunt who's going to have a more strategic role. Along with our other
active members, we have a reasonable committee (which sounds very
formal, but isn't)- and enough structure to consider setting up as a
voluntary association. More on that in a later email. 3) We discussed
the possibility of holding our own workshops, training courses, and code
sprint-type events, and a number of organisations, including the Centre
for Geospatial Sciences, have kindly offered their premises for this. 4)
We have had an offer from the Association of Geographic Information
(AGI) to hold funds for us, rather than worry about our own bank
accounts. This is something they already do for a number of other small
organisations, and would be extremely useful. I'm awaiting further
information on what would be required to set this up. 5) Ideally we
would like to have some sort of sponsorship of the AGI conference, or at
the very least a meetup of the chapter. We're looking into how best to
achieve this. 6) There is growing interest in an open source
implementation of INSPIRE, from a number of different organisations, and
OSGeo:UK may be a good place to coordinate this- we'll see! This is not
an exhaustive list- but it's already a long email so I'll send some more
information out shortly- and feel free to chip in with thoughts or
comments. I should make clear that OSGeo:UK does have a mission
statement and objectives that align closely with those of OSGeo
internationally. We may look at changing our objectives as the chapter
grows, but our aim is to provide a neutral place for both companies and
individuals to become involved in open source geospatial software. There
are likely to be some concerns about competition, particularly for small
businesses, but I sincerely hope this will be a place where profiles get
raised, and bigger opportunities come along as a result. Hopefully the
additional interest generated at this year's event will help us move the
chapter forward. I certainly hope so! All the very best Jo --
