It is part of our mandate to help organize "regular open meetings where ECGD matters can be discussed". We have had an ECGD plenary meeting at every LHCb collaboration week since December 2014, for a total of over 30 meetings so far. These meetings are usually dedicated to specific topic and are prepared with the help of a group of volunteers. Please contact us if you would like to propose a topic for one of the future meetings or would like to get involved in preparing a meeting.

The following links point to the (password protected) Indico pages of previous ECGD meetings. In some cases you'll have to scroll down to the relevant agenda item.
