Circular Resolutions

2022/Res12 Approve 200 working hours for Dorothea for State of the Map 2022 in advance

(Roland Olbricht)

I set up this circular as asked by the State of the Map working group. A majority means that the board as a whole approves this budget item. I don't know whether I technically could wave that through without a circular, but the SotM working suggested to make one.

(The circular included the text below, which is from an email to the board by Christine Karch - chairperson of the SotM working group)

As every year the SotM working group needs some work hours from Dorothea. As in past years we need help in formal and financial things for sponsors and travel grants. As past two years were "only" virtual State of the Maps I go back to Heidelberg 2019 for the estimation of hours we need:

The breakdown of Dorothea's hours for 2019 was:

  • Scholarship support: 208 hours
  • Sponsors: 55 hours
  • Other: 120 hours

It is very likely that we don't need as many as 2019. So we would like to ask you to approve 200 hours of Dorothea's help for the SotM working group.

Voting closes on 2022-05-17.
