[EURO-Discuss] Fwd: [Euro-board] Action Item from ALAC Call / Board Selection Process

My understanding is that EURALO encouraged Avri 
to become a candidate.  I know Avri had it in 
mind to be a candidate before we asked her, but I 
think we initiated contact in offering support.

If I am correct and this is the case, then it 
would seem reasonable to ask if anyone objects to 
EURALO supporting a petition to have Avri added 
to the slate. Make sense?

Also need to be clear that petitioning to have 
someone on a slate does not mean a promise to 
vote for them.  Decisions on voting should be 
based on full consideration of the candidates, 
any discussions we may have with them etc.  We 
are simply trying to give ourselves the best 
options in selecting the best candidate.
