Extraordinary General Assembly this weekend

written by claudiaab - 2014/02/18 20:13

After only three months with the new Board of Directors, BeVolunteer, the organization that runs BeWelcome, has its first extraordinary General Assembly (eGA) next Saturday (22/02). There has been dispute about how to steer BeVolunteer and about the functioning of the BoD. Over the last months several BoD members have resigned from the BoD: sitatara, who also resigned from other positions and volunteering in general, planetcruiser, guaka, who also resigned from volunteering, and one volunteer has suspended his volunteering (shevek).

The eGA will not be open to the public due to the partly personal issues. We will, however, publish the results of the eGA and the minutes.

In the meantime we will all do our best to ensure that the BeWelcome site functions as normal.

pedalr, this is not the point of the eGA. At the moment I agree with your priorities, but basically one doesn't have anything to do with the other. Whether or not we tell forum moderators to stop moderating will not give us more or less coders, so I don't see why they should stop moderating. I think they are doing an excellent job.

Haha, so I was born a mod and will always stay one? Interesting. I always believed in the power of free will...

I guess we can agree to disagree.

Maybe we should suspend all forums (and therefore moderation) until coders feel the website is running optimally :)

Anyways, best of luck on Saturday. Hopefully, there those still in BV who don't feel disheartened and decide to seek positions on the BoD.

I'm not sure if this is the right strategy, as I cannot remember reading any utopian novel that either achieves nor strives for "coding human behavior beyond perfection" ;)

By change there were not any IRC log / meeting minutes written down?
