TopicReport on Meeting with TSC for External Code System policy

Have permission to circulate External Code System policy to Co-Chair List.  Julie will present at Co-chairs dinner and also ask for comments etc. from the community.

We were also referred to the SGB; do we want to engage - and what would be our aim in engaging?

Our goal is good terminology in standards and specifications.

TopicDraft Agenda for the HTA meeting at the next WGM in Montreal

Check on progress of the Terminology Portal and External Code Systems

Dealing with SGB/TSC; review of GOM and our role; Julie will circulate the documentation in advance (there will be a quiz).  Working discussions with Vocab WG - governance versus technical implementation in the terminology space.
SGB and TSC - separation of governance and policy.  TSC sets direction/policy and SGB works out how to make that happen.

We work out what we believe we should, we talk with Vocab.  If there is agreement, we then take that to TSC and Board.  We need a joint meeting with Vocab during the WGM - JMJ to email Vocab CoChairs for Q4 Monday (not much CIMI business)

Rob/Jean/Julie retire after next WGM - succession planning


Canonical URLs for external terminologies process - need a policy....see Vocab WG notes also
