On July 9th  2014 at 20:36, the first steps were set to organise a national meeting for all IOPS Belgium members. An email has been sent to the whole membership, asking for suitable dates that could be chosen for members to attend. For once, living in a small country might work in our favor hehe. I hope this is the first step in jumpstarting the IOPS Belgium activity again, and hopefully reinvigorate our membership into getting things done on the field. Report will follow!

We discussed our involvement in local campaigns - the save the NHS campaign in Walsall and the campaign against Council service cuts in Birmingham. We have been participating in these campaigns and also raising IOPS ideas within them. One member had given a talk at the Trades Council in Walsall, which was well received. We agreed it would be good to have a leaflet about IOPS to hand out at such events. We also discussed our proposal to host a national IOPS meeting in Birmingham in the spring. We…
