6 General Assembly 2017

The earlier we start on it, the less stressful it will be. :) We should start thinking about where we may want to have it and who we need to reach out to, as well as fundraising and other logistical things. We should probably have a separate meeting, but does anyone have any ideas at this time?

  • the call for application for the venue should be drafted--> Thomas

7 Pirate Radio

  • a technical working group set up a pirate radio, incl. the legal parts cleared by now. Thomas has booked a slot of one hour a month for start. Moderation could be done by Bailey due to here experience.
Thomas takes care about the contact, so Bailey is in it soon and can take over, including preparing the radio format. To be discussed again about the format.
