It is extremely important to get new people actively involved. 
Putting someone who is NOT actively involved an has no history in 
At-Large in a decision-making role is not, in my mind, the way to go. 
More specifically, giving someone decision making responsibility 
related to outreach and budget when they have shown no interest in 
either is not how I, as a hopefully responsible manager, would choose to go.

Moreover, if you read the requirements carefully, the person to be 
selected did not have to be a formal MEMBER of the SC, just a 
Participant. Both the FBSC and the planned O&E SC are open. All it 
takes to become a participant is to send an e-mail to Staff saying 
they want to be on the SC.

In any case, please see my next message on this subject.
