Get started

STEP 1: Join the TODO Chat, Forum and OSPONews

The easiest way to stay updated on the latest trends in OSPOs, job positions, events, and studies is to subscribe to the monthly OSPO Newsletter.

TODO uses Slack for real-time communication and conversations are governed under Chatham House Rules. Within Slack, you’ll find our #general channel, along with various regional and working group-focused channels (learn more about TODO group’s community structure). Conversations in these chat channels are also anonymized and mirrored in the OSPO forum via GitHub Discussions.

Additionally, we offer community mailing list. Joining this list will enable you to receive invitations to our monthly meetings and stay informed about important updates within the community.
