proposals of change (10/2012)

Categories of members

Proposals : Only two categories of members : "adhérents" and "effectif"

by --Julienfastre 14:06, 11 October 2012 (BST)

  • membres adhérents : all contributors who may justify to be registered on OSM since two months ;
  • membres effectifs : members accepted by the board (this is the case in the french association) ;

I do not see the utility of "membres d'honneurs" and "membres bienfaiteurs".

Seuls les membres effectifs ont le droit de vote en assemblée générale. Les membres adhérents y sont invités, y prennent la parole, mais ne votent pas.

  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. --Julienfastre 14:07, 11 October 2012 (BST)

conditions d'adhésion

*4.1 Art. 11. Conditions d'adhésion et cotisation: 2000 EUR seems excessive for normal members? With a price that high, you'll mostly have corporate members. I suppose the goal of the association is to get as many members as possible? I would propose two tiers of membership: one for corporations (at 2000 EUR, or more?) and one for regular OSM contributors with a reasonable fee (50, 100 EUR?).--Gyrbo 14:19, 11 October 2012 (BST)

I think this is only a *maximum* price. This is also very high. I think that 50€ for an individuel is a more reasonable maximum fee.

5.3 Art. 14. Convocations: 8 days seems short to me. This can lead to situations where a minority decides things while a large portion of the members is on holiday. Since the "assemblée générale" is quite regular, I propose to extend this term to one month/30 calendar days?

Maybe also add a minimum required number of members present on a "assemblée générale (extraordinaire)" (50%, less?). --Gyrbo 14:33, 11 October 2012 (BST)

I agree with a longer time on convocations.
I think the law foreseen that we must have a quorum when the bylaw are changed. But for a regular AG, we should not have any quorum: this may block all the asbl/vzw in case of the quorum is not reached.

I think it should be "OpenStreetMap Belgium", with abbreviated forms "OSM Belgium", or "OSM-BE". Sounds more sensible than a "-Be" suffix to me. --Eimai 22:15, 11 October 2012 (BST)

Are we allowed to use the OpenStreetMap name for our association? Is this not a trademark of the OSMF? --Gyrbo 13:53, 12 October 2012 (BST)
Don't know if we can use the OpenStreetMap name. But anyway, given the discussion on the mailing list it'll have to become "OSM Wallonia" or something like that anyway. --Eimai 18:00, 12 October 2012 (BST)
I think we can if we are an offical OSM chapter (which i think is somewhat mandatory) EMerzh 18:30, 12 October 2012 (BST)
To become an official chapter I think you have to become an organization first, so there will be a period in between you're not a local chapter... But someone should ask the OSMF first. --Eimai 20:41, 12 October 2012 (BST)
