RDAP Association Town Hall 3/22

RDAP Association Town Hall 3/22

RDAP Town Hall

Hello RDAP community!

We have been hearing through various communication channels that you want to know what’s going on with RDAP, beyond the emails we send. To bring another form of visibility to the work we are doing, we are going to host a town hall this Friday 3/22 at 2pm EST.

We plan to set up another town hall in the next couple of weeks for those who can’t make this Friday’s meeting (we know it is short notice, but we see this as a more informal way for the community to interact with the Board). Also an FYI, there will be a business meeting at RDAP 19 where the Board will present more formally on the progress we have made this year.

Best,

The RDAP Association Executive Board
