thanks a lot for all your time and effort support our European operation.
I agree that we should remove that burden from volunteers as far as
possible. (And personally will be keen to see more openSAMM coming :-) )
I volunteered to be on the board of the Europe entity board for
organisational purposes. So as of today it should be a team of 2-3.
However, it would be good to set up this structure as good as possible
so that we need as little or zero involvement in the day-2-day accounting.
Hopefully this can be covered more by our US operations. If not, we may
need to look into hiring a European staff member.
Best wishes, Tobias
