Nonprofit Update

  • Next steps:
    • Sign and submit the Articles of Incorporation!! Woot!
      • Once the State of Indiana files those, the new entity is "born"
      • Start to transfer items from the LLC to the nonprofit
    • Finalize Bylaws (NGO lawyer wrote these based on Boston conversation)
    • Approve Board
    • Submit application to IRS

Road Map Summer Conference

  • Why? Next Road Map Conference may not occur til 2012, if we host in South East Asia which is too long to wait
  • Dates: late June, mid to late July
    • 3-5 days
  • Topics: opportunity to bring core implementations together with developers to build momentum
    • Burke - Strategy and Design
      • Strategy: things we're planning on the road map are planned out, prioritized correctly, and meeting implementers' needs
  • Next Steps:
    • Dawn is connecting with individuals at Columbia University about hosting the conference
    • Dawn will send concept paper to Andy to circulate with Columbia for conference support

Implementers Conference

  • HELINA chose their conference site
  • OpenMRS conference will start the day after (10 September)
    • Dawn: can start OpenMRS registration the day of to save some time
  • Dawn wrote concept paper to circulate with funders, so fundraising is the next/current step


  • Darius: The schedule is laid out, and it would be great to have leadership input
    • i.e. Hamish is leading evaluation, so it's helpful to know the priorities in order to start/complete that process
    • Review Road Map from the community that we prioritized during the Boston meeting to make sure the sprints meet those expectations
  • No labels
