Aaron raises issue of Ben having not attended Hackerspace, for the meetings or otherwise in a long time, and should not be on the executive. He would like him to be replaced. Nog asks if Ben has missed 3 consecutive committee meetings. Victor and Timeka say they have no sure answer, however neither can remember him attending more than a handful of committee meetings/informal gatherings. Nog says that the position is officially open based on the rules, because he has not attended committee meetings and the executive should have declared the position open when he first started missing meetings. He tells Victor he should do so immediately. Victor asks if someone else is willing to take the position should the position become open. Petter Caelli proposes Sven to take over the position. Sven confirms he would be willing.

Nog proposes a motion- when updating the meeting agenda on the forum, that the secretary makes a new post, rather than editing the original one. In addition, a financial report must be presented by the treasurer before any financial vote, and give an update on immediately spendable money- in person or paper.
