General Assembly meeting notes
We had the GA yesterday and it went pretty well! You'll find a summary of the discussions, votes and decisions that were made below!
Removal of the probation period
There was a 1-year probation period for members before they could vote in GA or have a seat in one of the groups. It has been removed as it prevented the involvment of potentially motivated community members.
Co-optation within Moderation and Steering commitees
Up until now, Moderation and Steering commitees members were elected once a year during a GA. However, this was quite rigid, because the project and involvement of members usually moves faster than that.
Moderation and Steering Commitee can now co-opt members into their group at any time. When this happen, a public announcement has to be published on the community channels (blog, matrix, etc.). In order to coopt a member into a group, all current members of the group must be unanimous.
During the next general assembly, each cooptation will be confirmed or revoked by a vote.
GA organization can be done by any board member
As per our statutes, it was done by the Secretary, however, we don't have a Secretary this year, so we had to update our statutes from:
At least fifteen days before the date fixed by the Board, the members of the Association shall be convened by the Secretary.
At least fifteen days before the date fixed by the Board, the members of the Association shall be convened by a member of the Board.
Agate and Petitminion where elected respectively as President and Treasurer.
Elections: Steering Commitee
Sporiff, egon0, gcrk and mjourdan were elected as Steering Commitee members.
Election: Moderation Commitee
Renon and devilcius were elected as Moderation Commitee members.
We currently have 3300€ on our bank account, with this amount increasing roughly by 150€ a month.
Our main recurring charges are hosting (55€) and inputs are donations (Open Collective or wiretransfers) for 200€ a month.
We will update the actual statutes soon, to reflect the decisions that were made, and let you know when this is done 🙂
Thank you to all the participants <3
