Open Board & Committee Calls

Board of Directors  /  Committees  /  Open Board & Committee Calls

Open Board and Board Committee calls are quarterly open conference calls held by DPLA’s Board of Directors and its two committees (Governance and Finance). Details about these calls, including a schedule of all upcoming calls and notes from previous calls, can be found below.

Open Committee calls are a monthly series of open conference calls, separate from the open Board calls, focused on topics related to our operational committees. These calls occur on the first Wednesday of every month at 2:00 PM Eastern. The schedule of upcoming open committee calls is available below.


Open Board and Board Committee Calls (Quarterly)

The Board of Directors holds an open conference call on the 15th of September, December, March, and June at 3:00 PM Eastern, except when that date falls on a weekend. The board will strive to host at least one in-person meeting per year (or video-enabled web conference for those who can’t make it). Additionally, the Board’s Governance and Finance Committees convene open calls every other month on a rotating basis.

These calls are open to the public, as per DPLA’s open meetings guidelines. Agendas are posted at least one week in advance of the call on this page, the blog, and the news list. Notes are published via those same channels within two weeks after each call; notes from past calls can be found below.
