Clarification[edit]

Hello, this meeting is called "affiliate chairpersons meeting", but then it says it's opened only for chapters and THORGs. Could you please clarify if User Group Chairs are also invited, i.e. all affiliates, or is it just for chapters and THORGs? Thanks, Shani Evenstein. 21:59, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

As of begin March 2019 sAPG funded User groups were included as well, were mentioned as "chairs from sAPG affiliates". Geert Van Pamel (WMBE) (talk) 14:46, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Geert Van Pamel (WMBE) . Yes, I understand that, but it does not include all User Groups, just those funded by sAPG grants. I made sure with Frans before I opened a parallel meeting. Shani Evenstein. 14:57, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
