== 6 - Proposal No. 2 - getting things done: finances & administration

  • We invited Guillaume from PPCH and Thomas from PPDE to discuss about an administrative side-association in switzerland.
  • At the Secon in Munich, Guillaume, Thomas, pakki and several others talked about bugging down PPI on administrative issues. Two points are a reason: finances lack of administration because of missing bank account in brussels. Moving PPI from belgium to switzerland ist not an option. And a contact/representative in Switzerland has a lot of advantages because of many UN organizations there/getting ECOSOC Status/Funding.

The solution could be a side-association of PPI in Switzerland. Guillaume proposes two things: 

1. to have a decision of the PPI GA to create an association within Switzerland and to grant power of attorney for a representative in Switzerland in regards to financial institutions: President, Treasurer and General Secretary as a minimum

2. In order to get ECOSOC Status you need major support in the UN. 

3. That demonstratibility of intent, work and engagement is crucial to  obtain the ECOSOC status. That's why I started with the motion presented to the both of the swiss pirate party. Now there is a need for the echo of PPI for the expooratory mandate. And the board of all the member parties need to state that they support the exploratory mandate and the candidacy to ECOSOC, because without that demonstration the ECOSOC board will not budge easely. For funing opportunities:

The Swiss Pirate Party has decided to support the effort in a formal way:

  • Proposal from ThomasG: set up a small task force to take care of the issues around the questions above, as well to improve the proposal for the GA and as well for checking the organizational issues dealing with in parallel.
  • Guillaume: PPCH has already a mandate to support PPI in that case
  • Task Force: ThomasG, Richard, Koen, Guillaume, pakki

YES:Richard, Andrew, pakki NO:  ABSTENTIONS: cbj

== 7 - PPI shop - checking organizational stuff

We have to set up a contract with PPDE about cooperating with the german pirate shop.
