Every year the BeVolunteer, the official and registered organization behind BeWelcome, should have a General Assembly (GA). There are some obligatory issues like the election of the Board of Directors, the financial report and a general report about the previous year, but other than that we are free to discuss whatever looks important. While only BeVolunteer members can actually vote, the whole GA is open for anybody interested.
The next General Assembly should take place some time between May and July and it should possibly be a real-life meeting with the possibility to participate online, too. We are currently looking for a good location and are asking YOU for help and suggestions. The location should
- be suitable for 10-30 people
- have internet connection (possibly for many computers)
- have electricity
- be suitable for a hospex party for many more people
The party can of course take place in a different location or just a pub. Last year we had the luxury of sleeping at the location of the GA http://www.linuxhotel.de/ueber.html - for free, thanks to a very generous donation, but it is also possible to look for hosts individually.
In the past GAs took place in Belgium and Germany, so it might be nice to have some place different - maybe a bit warmer ;-) this year.
We are looking forward to many good ideas, suggestions and maybe invitations!
