FFII General Assembly 2009: A brief summary by Hartmut Pilch

We concluded the General Assembly not, as wished by some, within the duration of one cigarette's smoke, but at least within less than the predetermined 3 hours.

The previous boards were exonerated thanks to the concerted efforts of producing reports for 2006-8 that had been led by Geza, who received repeated ovations for this work.  Prospects for stability of the associations had already considerably brightened after earlier during this year the tax office had preliminary approved the 2003-5 reports prepared by Georg.

Ivan delivered a great pictorial activity report which is also available to donors who view the www.ffii.org web pages.  It showed that some active members in and outside the board did important work this year.  Especially the work of Georg on EBO Referral, Bilski et al and Ante on ACTA, as well as work of André across all issues have sustained a role of FFII in external battles that were the biggest of their kind since 2005.

The small version of the proposed statute changes was carried this year, whereas the larger version of André will probably be carried 1-2 years from now, after the tax office has accepted this year's smaller step.

Stefan Uhlmann agreed to replace Ivan as the treasurer. The FFII's annual membership fee was raised from 15 eur to 36 eur for countries with a GDP of over 30000 USD/person/year.
