The Board of the TYPO3 Association has three petitions for the General Assembly
Petition 1: Change of the by-laws
We want to introduce a smaller combined board in 2019. At the moment we have 6 Board and 6 EAB members. In future we do want to have 9 Board members in a combined body. This should lead into faster decisions. Also we want have the full Board to be elected by the members and we drop indirect elections.
Read our full draft. See only the changes
Petition 2: Decrease the EAB temporary to four members
For the current EAB election we have only two nominates. As we want to reduce the number of Board members, we ask our members to accept an EAB with only 4 members in 2018, which will lead to 10 Board members, instead of 12 (Board and EAB combined).
Petition 3: Proceed a full Board election in 2019
With the introduction of the new by-laws, we want to start with full election of the Board to the GA 2019. 5 positions should get a period of office of two years, 4 positions should get a period of office of one year. The idea behind is, that we want to have elections every year and if only the half of the Board is re-elected, it is easier to get more continuity. The nominees of the next election must state if the want to get elected for one or two years.
