Agenda: membership, charity registration, position holders, trustees
Present: Jonathan Riddell, Kenny Duffus, Colin Guthrie, Nickie McFerson, Paul Adams, Thomas McGuire, David Jarvie
We want to change the constitution to clarify how members are accepted. membership applications are made by applying to the secretary. The memberhip will be notified (via our mailing list, or at a meeting). If there are no objections within a week from notification the member is accepted. Else the existing members will vote on the membership.
A membership database will be kept by the secretary.
We will update our constitution to reflect the above.

We will clarify the status of membership to the members of the mailing list, publishing the current members and asking if anyone wants to apply.
On votes quorum will be 25% of the membership. Decisions made by simple majority. The option with the most votes wins.
2. Charity Registration
We will register as a charity with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
2.1 Data Protection
We will register with the necessary authorities for data protection.
3. Position Holders
We will retain treasurer as Jonathan, secretary as Kenny. We will ask Stuart Jarvis if he wishes to become chair to replace Chris Howells.
We will appoint Jonathan Riddell as a trustee. We will appoint Kenny Duffus as a trustee. We will confirm with Stuart if he wants to be a trustee.
5. KDE e.V. Organisation
We will sign the agreement making KDE GB the official representative of KDE e.V. in our territory. We will ensure the agreement is not in conflict with the roll in the trustees of KDE GB as a charity.
