Thanks, Dave, for bringing the EU representation issue to the point.

As the election did not work out for EU, I think we do not have much possibilities to bring EU related topics to the OIDF board except by writing to this mailing list. I think if OIDF wants to allow more participation of EU in the board, OIDF has to create a foundation to do so. There are people in Europe (like Kick, Hendrik, Chris, Martin, etc.) that are willing to contribute.

Is there a way that an EU representative (e.g. Kick) can participate more closely with the OIDF board (attend board meetings, etc.)?  Could someone address this point at the next OIDF board meeting?
