Lasse presented the report from the board, and officially thanked all volunteers for their help in making DKNOG9 a great success.
4. Financial reports
Lasse presented the financial result of DKNOG9, and noted that there are still sponsors who have not paid their sponsorships. Even with this the surplus from DKNOG9 was just above 100K DKK. Lasse particularly thanked all the sponsors who paid in advance, as they made DKNOG9 possible, since we started with a new empty bank account this year.

6. Presentation of next year’s budget
Allan presented the operating budget for the association itself. It contained expected expenses for accounting, as well as a bit of money set aside for celebrating the volunteers.
7. Incoming proposals
There were no incoming proposals
8. Rules of procedure for DKNOG10
Allan presented his plans for DKNOG10 in which he will be the coordinator. This sparked a good debate about collaboration with the Nordic countries and other NOGs in general. There were also a discussion about the size of the sponsorships, and the social sponsorship in general, as this is expected to be more expensive in the coming year.
It was briefly discussed whether there should be any other activities under the DKNOG umbrella. The board was open to the idea although there was a general understanding that DKNOG currently does not have any resources to coordinate further activities.
Meeting adjourned 18:33
