fold faq How are the members of the Steering Group determined?

There is no election process, at least by now. Basically, everbody with experience in running events and some time to spare who is interested in making OS/2 and eComStation events happen is free to join.

fold faq Why are the members of the Steering Group not elected?

There are several reasons. While we think that democracy is a good concept, it does not work here.

  • Properly conducted elections are a time-consuming process, and somebody needs to be willing and available to conduct them. Since we are already quite restrained in terms of man-power, we'd rather see the time invested in getting the job done.
  • The number of potential candidates is rather low. Instead of competition, we'd rather engage in cooperation and get as many of them on board as possible.
  • If somebody is dissatisfied with the performance, he is free to voice that opinion and suggest improvements or other better candidates. Best would be to step forward and help, of course.

fold faq What legitimates the Steering Group in making decisions about locations and event teams?

Basically, their experience and dedication only. No, the members are neither duly elected representatives of the OS/2 and eComStation community, nor do warpevents.eu and the Steering Group have any respective legal rights. They were just the ones who were stupid enough to raise their hands. Smiley If you are not satisfied with the group's performance, feel free to join and improve it.
