Reading this following sentence from Henk makes me a littel "confused"...

1) Rob indicated to take care about the minites from the 2013 SOTM (once 
again thanks for that), but what about the SOTMs 2011, 2012, 2014? And 
the minutes from 2010 end in 2009 => no meeting in calendar year 2010 
for the SOTM 2010?

2) Maybe there is a general misunderstanding on my side on the role of 
the SOTM-WG.
Im my personal understanding the WG is resposible that a location for 
the SOTM is selected and that the conference itself is organized.
A lot of the organization will be done by the local team, the SOTM-WG 
should (as far as I understand it) guide and support the local team and 
also monitor them. On the other side it should be (IMHO) the link to the 
But how was this done w/o any official meeting in 2014? Has all been 
done in a back room? Reading this reminds me on the dispute between Henk 
and Simon some weeks ago where Simon complained about a blind flight 
concerning the SOTM from a boad perspective...   :-(
Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong...
