  • 8 adapting Rules and Regulations to decisions of GA


The GA conferred the authority to the BoD to modify the Rules and Regulations according to the changes in the statutes (approved by absolute majority) Points that were already decided: * Internal regulations should from now on be Rules and Regulations * number of seats and election modus for BoD: ** there should be 3-12 seats depending on the number of candidates ** to prevent a person not considered suitable by a vast majority to become a BoD member, just because there are not 13 candidates altogether, every candidate has to have at least 10 % of the votes to be elected ** the number of votes each member has is equal to the number of candidates ** each candidate can get a maximum of one vote from each member ** election is to be held with a single ballot displaying the list of all candidates and a boxes next to the names to be ticked (or crossed) in case of casting a vote for the candidate * apply the new membership terms set in the statutes to the Rules and Regulations

BTW: the only 'valid' version of the statutes is: http://www.bevolunteer.org/wiki/index.php/Statutes_%28approved_May_5th%2C_2007%29 / Statutes (approved May 5th, 2007) - it is already linked to from the public page, but needs to be made public itself Claudiaab 15:28, 7 June 2007 (CEST)
