While I'm happy to be the interim Chair for the LC, I want to share the
love. To that end, we need to work out the logistics for nominations
and voting for the following officers:
In case you're not familiar with the responsibilities of the roles, I
suggest you review the relevant sections from the KI Operating
Procedures (V1.0 2009-04-03) . Specifically, sections 2.3 and 2.4.
Also of interest related to this is that according to the bylaws  the
LC has the ability to nominate two liaisons to the BoT (and two
alternates). Further, if we nominate them before May 28th (when the BoT
requests nominations), we can take advantage of an opportunity for our
representatives to also stand as officers (President, Vice President,
Secretary, and Treasurer) of the BoT.
With that, I propose the following process:
1. This group begins sending their nominations
immediately for LC officers to this list (or
directly to me, if you prefer). As far as I
can tell, you can nominate yourself as well
NOTE: While it's not specified anywhere, I
suggest each nomination be for a specific
position, and that each of you only nominate
one person per position (and only nominate
someone once in your slate). Also, it'll help
if you make sure the people you nominate
are willing to take the job.
2. I will need all nominations by 21:00 UTC
on May 26th so that I can tally them, and
publish the "official" slate of candidates by
23:59 UTC Tuesday, May 26th.
3. Our first item of business on the call next
Wednesday, May 27th at 22:00 UTC (see
previous email) would be to come to a
consensus (or hold a vote) on each position.
NOTE: As Interim Chair (and the only
acting officer), I will run the call and vote
until this time, and then hand over the reigns
to the newly elected Chair.
4. Immediately following the vote, we should
then call for nominations for the two LC
representatives to the BoT.
NOTE: For simplicity, I'd like to put forth the
motion that the Chair and Vice Chair be the
representatives, and that we only hold the
nominations for and vote on the alternates.
I know it's a rush, but if we follow this procedure we will (a) quickly
get past this interim officer step, (b) have representation on the BoT
call the next day, and (c) be in a position for one of us to gain a BoT
officer position (if anyone wants that heady responsibility).
Are there any alternate proposals? If not, let's light up the nominations!
