Come and join us for the 98th OGC Technical Committee meeting. Hosted by the World Bank. This will be an amazing week with a broad range of meetings and topics being discussed. You don't have to be an OGC member to attend an OGC meeting. Whilst some meetings will be member only, many are open to anyone to attend and new voices are always welcome.
On February 4th, OGC Staff conducted the 'Upcoming Technical Committee Briefing'. View on YouTube.
Due to security protocols at the World Bank Facility, all attendees must enter with valid government issued photo ID. All attendees will be issued an OGC name badge and a World Bank Security badge. These two badges must be worn at all times throughout the week. In order to avoid the long security queue on Monday morning, those pre-registered prior to 29 February may pick up their OGC name and World Bank security badges on 6 March 2016 from 4-8 pm at the Elephant & Castle, 900 19th St NW, Washington, DC.
