Infrastructure, etc.

  • We are searching for an office to rent in Vienna. Several different rental models (coworking spaces, etc.) have already been discussed.
  • Because our sponsor of the office in Graz has moved to another location within the city, we had to change our address to Elisabethstraße 43, 8010 Graz. This will be an interim solution, since we are planning to move to Vienna.

Wikisource Scanning Project

  • A laptop is being bought for this project

Ortsbildmesse (fair concerning character and appereance of towns and villages)

  • WMAT supports this project.
  • We ordered folders, refunded travel and accomodation costs. The board also supported the organizers with the planning.

Photography Project

  • A card reader and another 32 GB CF-card have been bought.
  • Out of 70 relevant applications 11 people were chosen for a first interview. After filtering two final applicants for the CEO-job had been invited for a second interview.
  • Manuel Schneider will be the interim representant of WMAT at the WCA. At the next general assembly there will be a vote for the representant.
