OKFFI Planning Retreat 2016 – Nov 11-12

Summary:

It’s time to PLAN some awesome actions for 2017. What do we actually want to do? What topics or trends might we find interesting. How do we operationalize our great ideas!? Like last year, the goal is to have a good 24 hours or so time, at some location out of the office – with a nice mix of super people, hard work, and laughs. Hope you can make it! Please join us for the  Open Knowledge Finland retreat 11-12.11.2016, to plan 2017 actions, to get acquainted with other OKFFI people and activities, and simply to enjoy ourselves in a naturally beautiful area. You are most welcome to join and/or to take part in the agenda/content creation.   We’d love to see:
  • As much of the core as possible (= board, OKFFI employees, thematic/regional groups contact persons)
  • in addition to the core, at least some other members join – for Fri/Sat or both.
  • English content for at least some of the event, as needed
  • Especially important to NEW core members, or otherwise non-usual suspects

Uusia tekijöitä yhdistyksen hallitukseen

- March 23, 2015 in core, Events, Featured, hallitus, Official meeting, vuosikokous

Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 19.32.16 Perjantaina 22.3.2015 pidettiin Open Knowledge Finland ry:n kolmas vuosikokous.
Antti Poikola jatkaa yhdistyksen puheenjohtajana – haastajia ei tällä kertaa edes löytynyt. Hallitukseen oli ilmoittaunut käytettäväksi puheenjohtakandidaatin lisäksi peräti yhdeksän henkilöä, joten yhdistyskokouksella oli vara valita hyvistä ehdokaista. Kokous päätti kasvattaa hallituksen kokoa kahdella. Uusina jäseninä hallitukseen äänestettiin Laura Sillanpää, Lilli Linkola, Joonas Pekkanen, Ilkka Pirttimaa ja Mika Honkanen. Vanhoina jäseninä puheenjohtajan lisäksi jatkavat Tarmo Toikkanen ja Jussi Nissilä. Kokouksessa esiteltiin ja hyväksyttiin myös yhdistyksen tilinpäätös ja tilintarkastajan lausunto, toimintakertomus sekä toimintasuunnitelma seuraavalle vuodelle. Aineistot löytyvät kokoussivulta. Järjestäytymiskokouksessa sunnuntaina 22.3.2015 hallitus sai seuraavanlaisen muodon.
  • Puheenjohtaja – Antti Poikola
  • Varapuheenjohtaja (+ sysadmin) – Tarmo Toikkanen
  • Sihteeri – Jussi Nissilä
  • Rahastonhoitaja – Mika Honkanen
  • Tiedotus ja viestintä – Laura Sillanpää
  • Jäsenasiat – Lilli Linkola
  • Työryhmävastaava – Ilkka Pirttimaa
  • Hallituksen “rivijäsen” – Joonas Pekkanen
Samalla hallitus nimitti uusia ja vanhoja tuttuja nimiä yhdistyksen coreen. Edellisen hallituksen aktiivit Jaakko Korhonen, Raimo Muurinen ja Sanna Marttila jatkavat coressa ja core-tiimiä tullaan vielä täydentämään. Mahtavaa saada useita uusia henkilöitä mukaan!
