The board decides to do the introduction to the new board members step by step. First of all they are encouraged to read some of the documents of the organisation, available on the website. Specially the report from the Evaluation Seminar held on September 2002 and the Work Plan for the year 2003.
They are encouraged to participate in the upcoming events so they will start learning more about the organisation.

John revises briefly the calendar so the board will include it in their agenda. The first activity to come is a seminar to be held in Snoghoj Folkehojskole on September 27th. Eva Valvo will not be present due to other organisational commitments.
John also informs about the upcoming celebration of the Bridging Community Colleges project in October-November. He will keep the board updated about it.
