Save the Date: OpenLMIS Community Meeting: Nov 18-20, 2019

Dear all,

We are excited to share that we will be hosting a 3-day OpenLMIS Community Meeting this November. We very much hope that you will be able to join us for this rare opportunity to gather in person, and ask you to kindly mark your calendars to reserve these dates.

Dates: November 18, 19, & 20th
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
Hotel: Protea Hotel by Marriott, Balalaika Standton (this is a 2 minute walk from where the GHSCS will be held)
Funding: the community does have funding to support the attendance of a limited number of partners. We are currently assessing which partner organizations are available to attend and the funding needs in order to distribute funding. Please update this wiki page to let us know if you need funding to attend!

Meeting objectives:

  1. Provide information and guidance to the OpenLMIS Community around key decisions made and next steps to evolve the OpenLMIS product, community, and governance toward sustainability
  2. Facilitate capacity development opportunities for current (and potential?) partners to support future implementations and business development efforts

Next steps:
In order to help us move forward with our planning of the meeting, we request your input into the OpenLMIS Community Meeting 2019 Wiki page. This page will be used for tracking our participant list, funding needs, and your suggestions for discussion topics at the meeting. We have already received some great ideas, and look forward to hearing more from you on this wiki page to help cater the agenda to meet your interests.

We are really looking forward to this opportunity to meet with you all and collaborate in person!

Best regards,
Rebecca
