Questions raised during the workshop:
* Need for a one page Handbook digest
* Conference split upsets chapters??
* invoices not locally conform in each country
* deductable taxes are a problem (ie, companies based outside the US
can not deduct donations) - invoices without VAT also
* create an operational local chapter to use for tax/vat reasons
* hire a lawyer to investigate
* need for more clear rules / information on the wiki on handling money
* need for bylaw governance umbrella / local template
* what are examples - red cross/ wikimedia? - issa / isaca - examples
* need for clear treasurer roles
* what about local liability - what are conditions - to be put online
* A big hassle to organize local events in some countries (e.g.
Brazil, Slovakia)
* The Samy Kampkar tour to be replicated!

Actions:
* put the global insurance contract online (KH) - short advice for
chapter leaders: post your meeting / don't sign any contracts
* 1 page summary of the chapters handbook
* plan a follow up session on Friday (Seba - done: 13h30-15h00 @
Alejento Conference Room (2nd Track))
