Please let us know (hello[at]mydata.org) if you wish to host a local founding meeting event at your city on Oct 11th, we will add your event to the list above.

 

Join the preparations prior to the founding meeting

The MyData declaration published in 2017 is the fundamental document describing the vision of MyData Global. If you or your organisation supports that vision you are most welcome to join as the founding member of the new global nonprofit.

The key documents that will be prepared to the founding meeting are the bylaws and the first years’ business plan for the organisation. You may leave suggestions, comments and questions to the founding documents directly. To engage more directly in discussions with other founding members we warmly recommend you to join our Slack community http://mydata.org/slack

Besides the bylaws and business plan the new organisation needs a leadership team with diverse backgrounds. If you are interested yourself or if you know someone who you could recommend to serve in the board of directors or as advisor to the new organisation, please let us know (hello[at]mydata.org).

Let’s build the MyData Global organisation together!
