SAVE THE DATE: SPDX Forum April 6 in San Jose

Kim Weins

Hi All

The Biz Team has been planning a meeting targeted at potential SPDX users.  The idea is to begin to socialize companies to the ideas of SPDX and get them thinking about how it can help them in their compliance programs.  

Below are some  of the details of the meeting and agenda.  Please mark your calendars to save the date.  The meeting is the  day after the Collab Summit.  We hope to have registration up by the end of February.  If you are at an end user company, we will also want you to invite a few of your suppliers and/or customers to attend.
