Within ALAC, we have moved to all other personnel-related vote being 
secret. NARALO is not obliged to follow suit, but that is really the 
question in my mind.

I would suggest that the rule be changed to say that in cases where 
there are more candidates than slots, it is the call of the chair 
whether to attempt consensus or go strain to a vote.

Would that work with everyone?
