Hello, just to have it official: I'd hereby like to nominate Thorsten Behrens as election officer for the upcoming membership committee elections. As Thorsten is elected BoD member, he is not running for an MC seat, and thus should have no conflict of interest in acting as election officer.

Based on the statutes, the BoD is in charge of defining the size of the MC, with the limitations of having at least three people, and not more than 10% of the total members (i.e. 13-15 people right now, IIRC). I'd ask all BoD members to vote on the above proposal. My vote: +1 +1 -- Jesús
