Subject: [foundation-board] Open Knowledge Board Meeting 11th March 2015

Dear All
I hope this finds you well. Please find enclosed the papers (currently minus the audited accounts) for the Open Knowledge's board meeting on 11th March 2015. With thanks to Jane, who has made her offices available as a venue, we are meeting at Canonical offices. At the last board meeting there was a suggestion that we meet for drinks following the meeting. Please do join us if you are able!

For those attending the meeting virtually, we will send a google hangout link just before the meeting.

For your convenience, an extract from the agenda document is pasted below. I apologise for the number of documents. When the board have had a chance to express a preference on how you would like to see monthly management accounts presented I will reduce the number of documents to the specific ones you'd like to see.

A hard copy of the audited accounts will be brought to the meeting for signing if approved at the meeting. I will circulate the electronic version of the accounts, along with associated briefing notes and Q&A between Tom Cobbold and Michelle Heydon as soon as final updates to logo etc (logo was not rendering properly) are completed. Target date for this circulation is tomorrow, Friday 6th March.

Regards and thanks
