    3. Correction to financial report Michael

      • In FY11/12 I deferred the membership fee income from previous years because no invoices were sent
      • In FY12/13 I forgot to add that deferral although the invoices got out in FY13/14
      • I would propose to adjust the financial report accordingly to keep the income and potential write-offs in the same FY. That would mean additional 720 USD loss in FY12/13 giving more than 5,000 AUD loss in FY12/13 (but potentially more income in FY13/14)

2 Business

2.1 AGM preparation

Team reports are asked again.

There are no nomination for Australian board members. So we need to use a subcommittee.

Tomáš promised to write the AGM and SGM minutes.

Because of the lack of Australian members, the Australian CAcert Inc. faces major problems. One way out would be to create an European CAcert Association and move all CAcert activities to the new association. This will be a major topic for the AGM and the upcoming board. We assume most contracts can easily transferred, but the CAcert community and the CCA can be a big stumbling block.

2.2 Create a CAcert bank account in Germany

Nothing new. If we create an European association, this is solved anyway.

2.3 Correction to financial report

Already fully handled in the last meeting.

2.4 Accept Eva Stöwe as new Inc member

Unanimously accepted. Motion m20131113.3

3 Questions

No questions

4.1 Nex Meeting

We will meet 2013-11-17 20:00 just in case something is to discuss or to decide for the AGM.
