    1. work on the implementation of procedure with inactive BV members in the Rules and Regulations (Frank and Claudia)pending
    2. work on the implemenation of procedure with inactive BV members in Joomla (technical aspect)(Frank and Thomas?)<br />according to Frank Joomla doesn't look so suitable, so for now he would prefer to stick to the MAilman, which works fine for that. In th long run the option would be to use a BW group for BeVolunteer members for all the communication

    9. Status of SSL certificate acquisition pending
  5. feedback on newsletter <br /> about 230 people loging in after the news later during the 2/3 following days. without it it should have been something like 80. We also observed increased number of profile updates or address updates; now we are back to about 60 members online per day
  6. GA
    1. date and location are still pending
    2. Set Up should be similar to last year's: <br /> * online GA preparation (1 or 2 weeks), real life actual GA <br /> * the GA preparation will allow debates and will eventually realize votes in order to preselect decisions which should be taken during the GA. <br /> * the content to be voted during the GA will be available during preparation time, so GA participants already know these texts when voting. <br /><br /> Note: the preparation aims to make the GA shorter and more efficient. It will be a transition between our permanent online work and <br />decisions to take in a limited time. The less time it will take to vote things, the more interesting the GA will be in terms of talks and workshops.<br />
    3. voting should be possible through
      1. being present in person
      2. a delegate
      3. skype
  7. Other
    1. Marco will soon receive an answer from businesses he contacted for financial support
