The Board of Directors of the OSI typically conducts two face to face meetings each year. Our first meeting in 2009 will take place this week, just before FOSDEM, one of the largest open source conference for developers. We want to use this opportunity to be more visible in Europe, and to meet open source developers, users and policy makers. We'll hold a presentation and a public meeting at FOSDEM. In our talk, we'll cover recent activities and discuss the future direction of the OSI, such as the introduction of a membership program. Our public meeting has a very open agenda and is aimed to discuss activities related to the OSI and other issues of interest to the open source community. I hope to see many of you at FOSDEM!
