Hi Koen!

Thanks for your review :)

Yes, this is just a proposal of "how we may work". The main idea is to
have small teams (from 2 to 6 persons?) working on a precise and
concrete topic.

So those groups don't exist yet.

To me its not a problem if we have the same persons in many groups, as
far as *they are active* :)

I think those two are really different. You don't manage relations with
administrations and companies the same way. The persons are different,
and one may need different skills to manage it.

As an example, Gabriele and Damien rox at dealing with institutions, and
I'm bad at it.

I think I could serve the association much more dealing with Sponsorship
and Communication.

Andreas will do really great in helping me in Accounting, and he may be
responsible for Goodies (he's good at it).

Yes, I already have clear ideas on who may do what in those groups :)

Let me be more precise on one group's organisation.

I imagine:
 * a "chief" of the group
 * a list of workers (including the "chief")

The "chief" is only there to:
 * report the group's activity, goals, todo and achievements
 * interact with other groups'chief
 * decide finaly if there is no clear compromise in the group for a
   given topic

I imagine the "chief" to change each year. I imagine one person not be
chief of more than one unique group and some mechanism to force
elections when a "chief" is willing to give up or when he's gone or when
he doesn't do anything. :)

Please understand I'd like to keep it simple, far from bureaucracy. But
this said, we cannot act without some kind of rules.

Again, thanks Koen for the review and comments :)
