AGM 2011 - New Format

Recommended Posts

Keeping it simple – a new format for our AGM


The format for our Annual General Meeting is changing this year - instead of combining it with a Members Day (with an exhibition, speakers and training etc.), the AGM will be held on a separate day :


  • Date : Thursday 13th October 2011
  • Venue : Whitehouse Hotel, Worcester
  • Registration from 1.00pm - Formal AGM commences: 2.30pm
  • A free light buffet lunch will be provided for members who have pre-booked

By keeping the AGM separate, this will enable us to focus our efforts on organising a series of regional Members Days dedicated to training, speaker presentations, an exhibition, networking opportunities and anything else of interest to members. These are planned to start early on 2012 …. watch this space.



More details on the final arrangements for the AGM will be published on the Forum in the coming months.

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
