Circular Resolution 2014/02 - Budget approval - was accepted on 15th April with 4 votes in favour. The text of the resolution was:
1. Open Invention Network
No status yet, to be done through E-Mail.
2. Membership Fees
Discussion of various points - among others, how can we make sure that membership fee is not a barrier to joining; should we offer discounted rates and who would be eligible; is access to PayPal an issue. Kate to produce a proposal.
3. Corporate members
MT has completed a document outlining the reasons for organisations to become members; there's discussion whether CWG should be asked to publish it. Kate agrees to facilitate.
4. Local Chapters
Preliminary discussions have been held with the French and American OSM groups. Simon will also contact the Japanese group. A draft agreement is ready and there will be a last small change to the wording. Assuming that LCWG is ok with the wording, the agreement will go through a board resolution and then be proposed to the French, American, and Japanese groups initially.
Any other Business
2013 financials have been prepared for Companies House and will be accepted through a circular resolution.
US coverage will be added back to our D&O insurance.
Simon or Mike will travel to an INSPIRE workshop in Aarlborg in June.
We will try to schedule a F2F meeting around SOTM-EU.
