We don't want PPI to be some remote organisation that is of no real relevance to the average Pirate. We want grass root Pirates to get involved.

Board Meeting 28th July 2015 summary

Posted On: Thu, 2015-07-30 05:14 by Andrew

We held our second board meeting in mumble and although it got off to a bit of a slow start we achieved quite a lot. Highlights are:

1) We changed the rules of procedure so that votes cast by the board in our Loomio group can be counted towards the regular board meetings. This is important as the board is spread around the world and the time in never going to be suitable for everyone with people having to work or sleep when it is evening in Europe.

PPEU Has a New Board

Posted On: Mon, 2015-07-20 08:14 by Andrew

Pirate Parties International is thrilled to see the new team that has been elected to lead PPEU in the near future. Smári McCarthy is one of the movements leading philosophers and is well suited to the role. He must be very pleased to chair a board with such a wide range of talent, vibrancy and diversity.

We at PPI hope to be able to engage in activities that will benefit from synergies that will make the Pirate Movement stronger and more relevant in Europe and beyond.

The vice chairs are:

From the Chair: Andrew's first report

Posted On: Wed, 2015-07-15 22:32 by Andrew

To my surprise I have been elected to the Chair of Pirate Parties International. I put myself forward in order to encourage others to do the same and to my delight many Pirates did just that.

The result is a new and diverse team with Pirates from nine countries around the globe and speakers of at least the same number of languages. We have gender and sexuality diversity as well as a good range of ages. It is not perfect but I am confident that over the coming years PPI will be more and more representative of wide range of Pirates.
