ORCID Town Hall Meeting 2016: Asia-Pacific Region

15 February 2016, 11 am

To support community awareness and participation, starting this year ORCID is hosting regional Town Hall membership meetings.  We will provide updates to our membership on our current activities, plans, financials and governance.  This will provide an opportunity for ORCID’s members to learn about ORCID’s operations, and to ask questions and provide feedback and critical input on our future course.  Town Hall Meetings will be held virtually to allow for broad participation.  Our first Town Hall was held in coordination with our February Outreach meeting in Canberra, on 15 February.
