Resignations

  

Dichter: Ettienne resigned on November 19th.
RayJohansen: Issue that Etienne felt he needed to quit. The hope is that it is one only one resignation, because we don't want anyone more to quit.
Dichter: Cedric moves up from being alternate board member to the regular one
BaileyL: We received a letter with an explanation. It was a shock to say the least. Apologies to Etienne who felt he had no choice but to resign. We wish him all the best. We are sure that he will do great work, and we appreciate everything he did for us. Sad to see him go. We don't want any more resignations. We need to do our best and keep it together and work as a team.
keithgoldstein: Formal motion that we accept the resignation and Cedric moves up to the board
keithgoldstein: Cedric is a board member. We need to update our wiki to reflect that. Gregory will update the wiki.

Bailey:


BaileyL: Reached out to the CoA to see if they can help us out, because their parties dissolved. No response from the CoA. Pat is sending papers in the mail to sign for the bank account. I am just waiting on those and then I will send them off to Gregory.

Gregory:

Dichter: I was travelling for business in Australia the last two weeks, so had not had too much time to do stuff. I have wrote an invitation for the Standing Committee on UN Relations, and will send it out as soon as I get ok from Pat. I have talked to Bastian and Stefan about discourse and Stefan offered to host the old instance from old year for us indefinitely. We need to agree on subdomain for it and can configure it with it. I got passport /ID copies of Bailey, Ray and Keith - I still need one from Mike and Dan



Dichter: GA.pp-international.net

RayJohansen: Business as usual, except for sick family member that has taken half my time since July. Trying to coordinate the GA.

Mike:


MichalGill: Countries assigned to me, failure with Morocco. Impossible to contact anyone. Hungary may be signed up. That's about it.

Cédric:


Cedric: Business as usual. Worked on Congressus. Tasked formally from Guillaume, for broadcasts. It shows all of the votes in the same screen. Normally it works. We are testing it again and again. We will have the possibility to broadcast all of the votes in real time. Was setting up a VM for Discourse, but it is ok now.

Budget Motion by Etienne

This budget depends on our IT ppl donating services etc for 2018-19

keithgoldstein: Ray will be the spokesperson. We have tried to revise our budget. We have a proposal from Etienne, which is pretty awesome and great work by him. The numbers we had to change last night because we learned that maybe we will not be getting a bill for 2018 and 2019. If our members pay their dues or fees to the tune of 2500 euros, we will end up on the plus side. We have moved forward some of the items that were on the prior budget, such as registration fees. We have added bank fees. Other than that, we have been true to what our members decided. We really need to work on the income side.

Do we accept the proposed revised budget?

Formal vote on change in bank cashiers


submitted by: Gregory

justification: We already have talked about this at the last board meeting, but we need to provide written documentation to the bank.

Motion to be voted on: For our bank account IBAN: CH63 0900 0000 8901 9371 7 BIC: POFICHBEXXX at the Postfinanz Bank in Geneve, Switzerland we give the power of attorney to serve as cashiers to Bailey Lamon and Grigorij Engels, and revoke the past power of attorney of Guillaume Saouli and Rüedu Sommer.


Dichter: We also deem to change the postal communication address for the bank to the personal address of Pat Mächtler
Dichter: The most practical thing is to have the bank send all communications to Pat.
