DEAR EUROPEAN PIRATES
The newly elected board would like to express our appreciation for your trust and participation at the first council meeting. The debates and discussions we had were honest and during those two days a lot of things that needed to be said were said and heard.
But now it is time for action and new winds in the sails of all Pirate Parties across Europe!
So, in the past 10 days we’ve been busy:
1. planning of the next online general assembly
As decided on the PPEU council meeting in July 2015, the Board must arrange an online council meeting so that the council can change the statutes. We are now in the process of establishing the needed infrastructure and the rules of procedure. More information will follow soon, but we can already say that you should mark your calendars in the beginning of October.
2. coordinating the drafts of the statutes changes
We want to make sure that there will be enough time and effort put into statutes and that all council members will have the opportunity to be involved in the process of making the statutes as best as we possibly can. For that reason right after the council meeting in Brussels a special working group has been given the responsibility of oversight for this task; mapping out the outline (see important dates below), going through current proposals and gathering new proposals and communicating that with council members. The first version of the proposed changes is public for review and can be found here.
We kindly invite you to contact Mab with your inputs and suggestions.
- 30.7. first version is out!
- 14.8. deadline for the input on statutes
- 19.8. second version of statutes (will be put on web)
- 24.8. deadline for the input on statutes
- 28.8. statutes sent to board for approval
- 30.8. board sends statute proposals to members
3. administrative work
We’ve had a meeting with the previous board’s members and we had done all the necessary paperwork so the transition is complete. We were also given the access to the PPEU’s website, its social media and other digital assets.
