Hi everyone

Last night's concall made some good progress: there are no minutes (Greg we
missed you!), but here is a summary of decisions and contentions

1. Name to appear on incorporation documents will be OpenStreetMap United
Kingdom Community Interest Company. No doubt in everyday use this will get
shortened to OpenStreetMap UK, but our legal name will be the full monty
2. Drafting needed to ensure that co-option of Directors is subject to the
same maximum (15) as elected Directors
3.Drafting needed for Directors election timetable
4. Removed all clauses (para 40) relating to member organisations ( these
will be covered by Associate Members)
5. Can't remember what we decided on natural persons being Associate Members
6. After the meeting thought: do we need to insert a clause with an
obligation to keep a register of Associate Members ( as OSMF has in its
7. AGMs were agreed - timing as per draft
8. Incorporation Document CIC36 Community Interest Statementneeds drafting
- Brian to prepare a draft
9. Founding members - more are needed urgently - there's no subscription
set at this time. Remember that the first General Meeting will be held soon
after incorporation where the Directors listed for incorporation will all
resign for new ones to be appointed by the membership and various matters
will be discussed and agreed which aren't appropriate in incorporation
documents(e.g subscription rates). If you're not a founding member I guess
legally you can't participate. Send your full name and address to osmuk at
nomoregrapes.com (this is Greg Marler )
9. Powers of Directors. This was a contentious issue and took up most of
the meeting. We agreed a way forward but there was considerabe discomfort
about the outcome. It's fundamental to the organisation so deserves a wider
discussion: expect a separate email and discussion shortly.
