AGM 2020 location and venue ideas

GL
Gareth L(Director) Public Seen by 73

Another year means another AGM. This itself is usually a short 30 minute affair to vote for new directors and other motions raised, with all members invited to attend and vote. Last year we were at Newspeak House in London and linked in with a wikidata meetup that followed.

Suggestions and ideas of venues please for May-July period.

Bristol - gives folk from Wales and the South West a chance to attend . Not too difficult for Midlanders and Londoners either. Sorry about everyone esle but wherever we pick someone will have a long journey!

Bristol. Leeds. Aberdeen. The Isle of Man. Online? Selected randomly?! (we will turn this into a poll soon). Bonus points if someone has a group/venue to offer

I have some nice venues in Newcastle & Durham that I should be able to get free of charge. There would be interested people in a set of talks related to OSM and there's plenty of tourism/mapping to do in the North East.

I'm unlikely to be available for the first half of July (SotM in South Africa)

  • +2: Very interested - will definitely attend.

  • +1: Interested - will probably attend.

With enough advance warning and a good agenda, I'm generally happy to make a trip out of it. Keen to go somewhere I haven't been in a while. As for online options, I find chat only platforms harder going especially if trying to incorporate into an in person meeting.

It may be worth contacting Simon Redding in Chesterfield. He is director of a social enterprise Monkey Park which has meeting space close to Chesterfield station. The East Midlands Group is extending it's range to include York & Leeds this year (in part because SomeoneElse is now Leeds based, but also because Sheffield links have grown) and we are planning a meeting in Leeds later in the year. For this reason I'd favour Leeds if possible.

Wherever is chosen could an additional agenda be created to make a weekend of it, to have discussion groups about mapping and technology issues. Workshops & survey opportunities.?? An agreed hotel e.g.Travelodge?

With regards to Leeds we should talk to Chippy & the open data organisation that is based there (I'm likely to get names mixed up if I say them right now).

Hi. I work with data at the Open Data Institute Node in Leeds (ODI Leeds). We have an events space and I'm sure we would love to help. I'm not sure how big the AGM is expected to be but we often have events with 50-100 people. More info on the space at https://odileeds.org/services/events/
