As a result of the decision made at the General Assembly, the regular Executive Council responsibilities of Paul Mackay and Bodo von Plato ended on 24 March 2018. As Seija Zimmermann has retired simultaneously—as previously announced—the current Executive Council members at the Goetheanum are: Justus Wittich, Joan Sleigh, Constanza Kaliks and Matthias Girke.
The tasks and positions assigned to Paul Mackay that is, Bodo von Plato, within the Goetheanum, in projects, for conferences and working contexts will remain in effect until the Goetheanum Leadership retreat on 11-12 June 2018 and will then be reassigned as part of a reorganisation of all assignments and responsibilities. Paul Mackay's mandate to continue representing the General Anthroposophical Society on the Board of Directors of Weleda AG was confirmed by the Executive Council on April 10.
The Goetheanum Leadership, comprised of the members of the Executive Council at the Goetheanum and the leaders of the sections of the School for Spiritual Science, will analyse and discuss the results of the 24th March vote and prepare further decisions until the closed retreat in June. In particular, the following questions will be examined: What mistakes and omissions did the Goetheanum Leadership make? Which developments did it not assess correctly? Where are the shortcomings in communication with the members?
