Steering Group starts preparing for autumn eletions

In general the current board has good vibes and many would like to continue. We will start the candidate recruitment process by asking officially from all board members if they are willing to stand for re-elections. We will also interview their experiences and opinions on “ideal board composition” and in general seek their guidance for the process. Additionally, other aspects like number of board members were discussed.
