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?

#12 refers to ALAC members being chosen by a rough consensus process.  This has never been done.  It has always been done by a voting process.  The rough consensus wording should rather be used for routine decisions.

I am happy to make such a change if there is such a will.

I wouldn't say never.

NARALO's first two non-ALAC reps -- Robert and Beau - were chosen by consensus, no vote was ever taken. I believe that Gareth's selection as well as my first, were also done that way.

I would prefer to keep the option so to allow for the flexibility.
