Information about membership application for non german applicants

Non german applicants can only join as benefactorial members. This is due to a decision taken by the executive committee. If the amount of non german and therefore probably not general meeting attending people becomes to high the possibility exists that the association is no longer able to make decisions or form a quorum (Article 8.5). Therefore, if you want to join Digitale Kultur e.V. as supporter of its cause, please feel free to join as a benefactorial member.
