Why you really must attend the GA this year. Like, "really"!

Dear Members of the TYPO3 Association We have come to the conclusion that the TYPO3 Association needs to change the way it’s supporting the TYPO3 Community. We also feel the urgent need to have an overall strategy for the next three to five years that reduces time- and energy-consuming discussions by providing guidelines and general objectives for the "daily business" of our organization.
Since we think the strategy process is something which must be firmly rooted in the membership base, the current Board and the EAB have been continually and intensively discussing the TYPO3 project with all sorts of folks during the past 12 months.
As a result of this process we have now formulated five long-term goals. We want to measure all of our actions toward these five goals in the future.
Additionally, and more importantly, we have created three future scenarios for the association. And we would like you to vote on them at the General Assembly. All of them can have a crucial impact on what the association could look like in the future. 
This is why you should attend the GA this year!
You can find a brief scenario and <media 2975 _blank>application documentation here</media>.
We welcome all <link https: forge.typo3.org projects t3a-board-public boards _blank>questions here and will try our best to provide you with appropriate answers.
And finally, if you have better ideas and would like to make suggestions, please do so by handing them in (in advance); in this way we can discuss your comments and suggestions at the GA. <link http: association.typo3.org general-assembly ref assoc _blank>Find the information about this here.
We are all looking forward to the GA. Let's make it big; let's make it the starting point of a renewed TYPO3 Association. 
On behalf of the EAB and the Board
