TOP 1 Update on Council and other meetings

The call is here:

* About Pirate Con Marianske lazne (PPCZ) meeting
Gil : It's gonna be an unofficial meeting, without Board elections. They are going to prepare the July council meeting. We expect some input from the Czech.

* Date of the Council meeting : July 17-18th
Gil : The final text of the inivitation is still a work in progress, but may be finished and sent by the end of this week.
Pol : whats the last deadline for sending invitation and other 'official' things (respect of the statute ) → this is indicated on TOP 5.ok thank you

* Other details

TOP 2 Board TODO-list for the meeting

* Report about our year, especially why the AISBL hasn't been registered with all arguments that led to the decision.

* IT → Gilles
* Financial → Radek, Paul & Gilles Paul : we should mention it was complicated to chose between an ethical bank and a commercial one. While the later would be more effective, the first was the only choice for many Board members.
* AISBL → Maybe each Board member
* AISBL decision timeline (for Board report) → Anders, Maxime, Paul
* AISBL registration pros and cons (for Council vote) → Gilles, Tony, Paul For the AISBL points at least, it is proposed to organise dedicated meetings with less Board members.

Gilles will create a doodle to determine who is available and when in the upcoming evenings. Then we will organise small working meetings on common subjects of the available people.

* Call for a vote of the council on the AISBL topic.
→ postponed until the report is at least drafted.

Invitation text, draft by Anders, then Gilles.

TOP 3 Proposals to Council meeting agenda

* Board Elections
* Statutes / Manifesto - proposed changes
* Items left from the 2014 Brussels meeting
Maxime : only the admission of observing members has been postponed from the 2014 Founding conference (see at the end). We shall add the 2014 applications to the new ones for the vote.
Paul : Has Mab, Martina or Muriel got the list of 2014 applying Observer Members ?
Gilles : Mab has the documents.
Paul will contact Mab to get this list.
* Deciding whether the PPEU should or not register as an AISBL and open a bank account now (shorter : more administrative work, is it useful/needed ?)
→ Already covered in the previous topic.

TOP 4 Approval process of the Council meeting agenda

Tony : it depends on the timeline. We need the deadline.

TOP 5 Timeline of Statutes requirements

As soon as possible

* Keep a list of the members in Brussels' “PPEU office”
→ Gilles will print this information and store it at PPEU's office : * Request accounts and election results from PPEU members
→ Paul : let's make a form with all the data we need from each party Statutes : Ordinary members have the obligation 'to send their yearly accounts and election results to the Association or a link to them, if they are published accessable for everyone online'.
* Prepare and send a call for new members of the PPEU (No deadline is proposed, applications should be accepted until last moment but we could recommend them to be sent in advance ?)
→ It is suggested to contact Pirate Times and to send a call for new members on social networks. Maxime : make a public link to a form for application (we propose to publish the list of pirate parties who are candidates for the independance day)
* Determine voting powers Gilles will add to the invitation to the meeting a sentence asking the members who would pretend to a voting power different than 1 that they should get us the relevant data and proofs to check their computation.
* Establish and adopt 2014 yearly accounts and 2015 budget, and submit it to approval For the time being there has been no expense and no income. So 2014 will be easy. it's not much, we will ask Radek
