Logfile from meeting 2018-08-17

Apologies: Peter M. (in no internet area of Australia)


Guests: Alain V, Alex B, Dirk, Gero, Frédéric D, Guillaume, Karl-Heinz, decay, nb, nemunaire, ynazarov, zerkalo

Preliminaries At 20:10 UTC the president took chair and opened the meeting. The secretary will make the minutes. The committee accept he minutes from 2018-10-04 with 2 ayes and 1 abstain (by the minute taker).

Business Public Officer: The committee nominated Peter M. from E., New South Wales, as tt public officer. Furthermore the committee is willing to relocate the association as soon as possible. A motion to ask the committee 2018/2019 within their term of office is not voted, as the president thinks, a committee cannot force another committee to do something. On the other hand, the members of the committee 2017/2018, nominated for 2018/2019 and present at this meeting, promise: "If we are re elected for 2018/2019, we will relocate CAcert Inc. outside of Australia during our term of office." (unanimously)

There was some discussion concerning the relocation, as there are to ways: create an other association (CAcert2) that take over the tasks from CAcert Inc. or to relocate the existing association. For the second way, the new location must allow legal entities to immigrate. According to the Secretary, there should be countries in Europe that make this possible. For CAcert, it would be much easier to move (rather than found a new association), as there is no need to adapt policies.

AGM: Most is ready for the AGM net friday. The president will finish the board report within the next hours. We have more team reports than the last years.

Question Time

The AGM is on 2018-10-19-20:00 UTC in the room #agm.
