Under Covid- 19 conditions, this general meeting took place online for the first time. This raised special challenges for the elections of the Executive Board and Advisory Board.
In a test vote, the members were asked “if they like pizza”. After this poll was answered correctly and clearly, it was determined that the online voting was feasible and documentable. After the formal requirements have been confirmed, the election of the Executive Board and the Advisory Board could be carried out.
