2 Business

2.0 Accept topic 2.1 as Late Business

It was accepted, Motion m20131221.2

2.1 Make Ben Dechrai member of CAcert Inc. again

Ben Dechrai had resigned but agreed to stay Inc. member and stand as additional Australian board member. He was nominated and seconded again as an Inc. member, then the Motion m20131221.3 was carried.

2.2 Create a subcommittee

None of the additional Australian members showed up. So nothing essential could be done. Michael will contact Australian members again.

2.3 Submit OFT report

In Australia the list of board members of an association is not kept at the OFT but at the public officer, so we need not to wait but can submit the financial report and the rule change to OFT. Motion m20131221.4 was carried.

accepted with Motion m20131206.6

2.4 Move CAcert Inc. to another country

One requirement is a country with a lot of active members. Countries in the Euro zone are preferred. UK is not the best solution from questionable GCHQ activities. Since assurer are not agents of CAcert but independent, there are no DRP issues in this regard.
