After a long period of inactivity on the policy side, we are back in
in business again.
In February board nominated a Policy Officer (Eva Stöwe) and this was later
confirmed by a Policy Group vote.
At about the same time an intensive discussion regarding changes to the CCA
There are a lot of changes, some of them being just cleanups or
rephrasing, but there are also some bigger changes.
The central changes are:
– The CCA can be accepted by more ways than currently allowed.
– How CCA may be terminated was greatly rephrased, it now also covers
death of members.
– A clear obligation to answer truthfully before and to help arbitration
