Dear all,

last weekend Wikimedia Österreich (Austria) had its General Assembly in

A new board has been elected:

* President: Kurt Kulac (as before)

 - Christoph Breitler didn't recandidate
* Secretary: Beppo Stuhl (as before)
* Vice Secretary: Michael Karolzak (new)
 - Ingo Allmer didn't recandidate

* Vice Treasurer: Michael Kranewitter (as before)
* Adviser: Andrea Kareth (new)
 - Denis Barthel didn't recandidate

 - Manuel Schneider didn't recandidate - WCA Council Member

This General Assembly was also an opportunity to meet Claudia Garád, our
Director who started her work on October 1st.

There were some changes in the bylaws:
* the seat of Wikimedia Österreich moves from Graz to Wien, where we
rented an office a few weeks ago
* Members who didn't pay their membersgip fee despite a reminder until
the General Assembly have no voting right. They can regain it by
clearing the membership fee with one of the treasurers.
* several cosmetic changes with no change in the meaning

The WCA Council Member, formerly appointed by the board, has been now
approved by the General Assembly.

Activity and Financial reports, motions and bylaw changes can be found

Translations of the Activity and Financial reports to english will be
started soon.
