I'd like to personally welcome you to the start of the October Business Meetings. While virtual, there is a wealth of activity taking place over the next 3 days, satisfying the governance and advisory aspects of an in-person business meeting. 

Remember that you can locate the schedule of these governance, advisory, project and clinical reference group meetings, including zoom links, via the What's on this Week calendar.

Business Meeting Highlights:


I invite you to register for and attend the Open General Assembly, Tuesday October 6, 12:00 - 13:30 UTC, where General Assembly representatives are presented with and vote on statutory matters. Other presentations in this meeting include a progress update on the Organization's strategy and innovation portfolio. 

Closed meetings of the General Assembly, Management Board, and Member Forum round out the Governance meetings this week.   

Advisory, User Group and Clinical Meetings

Modeling, Terminology Release, Editorial, and E-Learning comprise the Advisory Group element of the schedule.  The Managed Service User Group, a sub-group of the Tooling User Advisory Group, is also scheduled to meet. 

In addition to Anesthesia, Dentistry, and the new Genomic and Precision Medicine Clinical Reference Group meetings, the Clinical Engagement group has organized a "SNOMED for Clinicians" session on Wednesday October 7th. Featured keynote speaker, Dermot O'Riordan, Consultant Surgeon at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, participates in this session that will also deliver an overview of clinical engagement and the work currently underway. Register to attend.

Member-Led Meetings

New to this October's schedule include two Member-led meetings. New Zealand invites you to the launch of their SNOMED CT consumer friendly terms (October 6, Register here) and the Belgium National Release Centre invites you to learn about their 2019-2021 roadmap, including existing and ongoing projects (October 7, Register here.)
