1. introduction

Sytse: Next year there will be a Arnhem-calling again

2. ambassadorship

Liza gave a short update about the worldwide developments concerning ambassadors

Liza is almost done with the reorganisation of the CS NL group, nice that finally almost everybody replied.

3. Newsletter

   * reactions were positive
   * so far 1418 unique people visited the site
   * The newsletter helped a lot for getting people to Arnhem Calling
   * NMW could redirect new members to the newsletters (Henri > people in the NMW)
   * It would be nice to have a link to the site on the NL group (Liza, Henri)
   * Nicholas might be able to a get the site hosted on the couchsurfing servers. We keep this in mind for when the number of visitors will increase. Nicholas will check the possibilities.  (Nicholas)

4. Actionlist provious meeting

  • cities without ambassadors: no developments yet
  • foundation research: Linda: association is no option at all, there are quite some formal requirements and costs for that, but there are also advantages. Other countries (Indonesia, Hungary) have got more experience about it.

Linda will investigate more, Erik and Clarissa can assist a little bit.

  • Dutch groups reorganisation: Giuseppe: it is almost done
  • Group moderation: Giuseppe will check which groups are not moderated. Please reply if you know people who might be suited to moderate them.

These people can help:

     Brabant / Limburg: Maikel
     Gelderland: Erik
     Overijssel: Annemarie
     Drente, Groningen: Tamara
     Friesland: Menno
