Meeting notes

Attendees Documented
Financially Summary Presented
* Euro 1731
* Taxes had to be filed, issues due to board transition
* German language issues and documents required to be at a German address. Lots of overhead
* No spending in last financial year
* No donations received either
* Setup SPI affiliation to allow for funds to be collected in and held in the US
Financial Report Approved
Discussion of possible uses for collected funds:
Things membership generally in favor of:
- travel sponsorship preferred 
- ship event box for conferences
- create additional event box for NA
- financial availability for emergency hardware
- promotion at events
Things membership generally not in favor of:
- sponsorship at events e.g. coffee breaks
Discussion about future of e.V. and whether SPI (as an example) would make sense
- nobody against dissolving e.V. in principle
- Feeling that board should investigate and consult members and come up with a proposal
Meeting Ended 19:20

Action Items

  1. Board to review alternate legal structures including affiliation with foundations, e.g. Apache, Gnome, etc
