T21RS was established as non-profit in the Netherlands. Under Dutch law it could be either a Society or an Association. Society was chosen at the advice of the notary, but in fact, it makes administration of the society very difficult and very expensive. Thus we are seeking to change the society designation to association.
To change the society status, we will hold an electronic vote 4 weeks from now on May 12-18 - this pre-notice of 4 weeks is required by Dutch law to make this change. More information will be provided within short notice. We must have 2/3 of the membership vote, and 90% of them must vote in favor of the change to adopt this. So please vote! Reminders will be sent.
We need your vote!
