Brilliant! We've got go ahead for potential PD calculators workshop in

(As an aside: I think this could be a really valuable area of the
OKF's activities! As far as I can tell we are currently nearly the
only ones in this area!)

Are people game? Shall I put together a brief proposal on this? If so
what dates would be good? :-)

Hi Jonathan,

Sure, I think it is a great idea.
Please send me a proposal with the basic information:

1. proponent
2. venue
3. date
4. expected participants
5. expected outcome

Once approved, participants
will be able to use their COMMUNIA funding to cover
travel expenses to the WG meeting, according to the same
rules that apply to COMMUNIA workshops and conference.

Thanks a lot, best
