Granting discharge to the board
The board suppose to present a yearly report to it's members. If the members are satisfied, they can vote on a relieve of the board. Not granting the discharge doesn't have any consequenses, it has to be understood as "we are not happy with you're doing".
A budget report has to be presented and accepted.
The board has to be elected every year.
Who can be elected?
Whereas the formal acknowledgment of the past and present budgets will happen on the Wave, the board vote will be carried out anonymously and privately over ballotbin. Vote invitations will be sent out to all association members. The anonymized results will be automatically disclosed to all voters after the vote has ended. Note: A vote cannot be changed.
And if I don't like the way the vote is carried out?
A request has to be made in the very beginning of the meeting.
Requests for items not on the agenda can be made before or during the meeting. This is includes (but is not limited) to bylaw changes. A change to the bylaws for example needs an explicit request whereupon a vote will be initiated to vote on the change.
