The board recently passed a resolution, which you will find below
In the aftermath of the resignation of Michael Davis (effective october
31th, 2007) and Erik Moëller (effective december 15th, 2007), the board
confirms its will to replace the two former board members, as well as
its committment to expand the number of members on the board of
directors at the earliest convenience, up to a number of 11 members
maximum. Due to its commitment to involve members from the community, at
least half of the new members will be appointed for a term ending at the
next board elections, in june 2008.
I just did a double-take; re-reading what aphaia wrote below...
Surely, but surely, it cannot be that the idea is to have a final outcome
that a minority of the seats will be those elected from the community.
I really, really hope that "commitment to involve members from the community"
is not language which is just a nice way of saying community will be given a
minority stake in the board, with the majority being decided by a view on other
kinds of considerations.
Please do clarify as soon as possible.
