With another successful year gone by, and the number of members still growing, we come to the point in time where another General Assembly (GA) is to take place.

"File:" cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.



The email that was sent - on February 26th - with the same content as in this page serves as a formal invitation to the General Assembly on March 17th 2012 taking place at the hackerspace in Strassen, starting at 6pm (18h00).


The agenda for the General Assembly is composed of the following points:

  • Welcoming speech by the office representatives
  • Presentation and discussion of modifications to the statutes (this includes new people in the board)
  • Presentation of 2011's receipts and expenditures
  • Discharge of the treasurer by our auditors (gunstick, emQue)
  • Election of a new administrative council
  • Election of a new treasurer
  • Election of two new secretaries
  • Call for two financial auditors for 2012


There are a couple of additional things you should know:


A) In order to conclude this general assembly, we need 2/3 of our members ( = 29 members) to be present or be represented by another member. Else the GA has to be rescheduled. Thus we urge you to mark the date in your calendar and be present. This is important for us and for you!

B) If you cannot attend the assembly personally, you're allowed and even encouraged to have yourself represented by an adult person of your choice. We will accept either pgp-signed emails or analogue signatures as prove of this delegation on that same day. Note that at the GA you are only allowed to represent one other person.

Administrative Council

C) You're also encouraged to stand for elections. Note that if you want to stand for elections to the positions of Secretary-General or Secretary-Deputy, you need to apply twice (once for the council, once for the position of Secretary)

How to apply for either election
At least 24 hours prior to the GA, i.e. latest at 17:59 on March 16th 2011, you need to send a PRIVATE email to the current council at office_AT_hackerspace_DOT_lu

Also remember that we decided on the 2010 GA that every applicant to the position of Secretary should present his ideas and goals for the forthcoming legislative period (year). [A 5 min lightning talk is totally ok]

For simplicity's sake, we ask that even members of the current council submit their applications.

Amendments to the statutes

D) Amendments to the statutes must also be entered at least 24hours before the General Assembly takes place and equally be sent to

The current version of our statutes can be found here.
