[board-discuss] Re: Joining Silicon Sentier

Hi Florian and BoD,

While I agree totally with joining Silicon Sentier, I was wondering how the BoD can run a vote when there is no quorum reached for the meeting? Are business for the meeting not cancelled and must be re-scheduled for proper discussion at a future meeting with quorum?

Is the application of the "BoD § 5 I rule" not for only votes taken when a quorum is reached? It just seems strange to allow voting like this.



Le 2013-01-23 10:36, Florian Effenberger a écrit :

The Board of Directors at the time of voting consists of 7 seat holders
without deputies. In order to be quorate, the vote needs to have 1/2 of
the Board of Directors members, which gives 4.

A total of 2 Board of Directors members have participated in the vote.
The vote therefore is NOT quorate.

Result of vote: 2 approvals, 0 neutral, 0 disapprovals.

Based on our rules of procedure
(, § 5 I, "not
answering in the vote thread for longer than 2 business days (for
reasons including absence and illness) counts towards approval".

Therefore decision: The request has been accepted.

This message is to be archived by the BoD members and their deputies.

I would like to ask that TDF joins the Silicon Sentier Association in
Paris ( . Silicon was our partner that hosted the
first LiboCon but more importantly, the membership comes with the
ability to run events either for free or with a nice price in the heart
of Paris (at La Cantine or elsewhere).

The membership fee is 179 €. I'd like to ask the BoD members to vote on
this asap.
