Hold association meetings before end of year
Regarding the association meetings: We are not obliged to do them at all. German law puts indirect obligation on them: We have to do them, if they are useful/necessary for the association. The only thing where this apply is actually the yearly finances report (Haus kante Wurzen, wandel würzen), the election of board (wandel würzen) every two years and election of bookkeeping checking person (wandel würzen) every year. The financial report needs to be submitted to the financial institute by end of may, that is why doing the meeting in april/may seems reasonable to me. Reelection of the bookkeeping checking person for wandel würzen has to happen in august.
