There will be no registration fee or other expenses. We hope you will make plans to attend.Membership Task Force Forming.

Membership Task Force forming. As you know, great leadership, keen technological prowess, and a strong community are three critical components for VIVO's success. A fourth one is Membership. Membership revenue pays for a full-time project director and tech lead, travel, fund-raising, marketing, infrastructure, and a number of other things critical to the success of open source projects. We have ambitious goals this year and we want to fire up all our engines to achieve them.
