I do not believe so.  The only time we have filled slots without a vote is when there was only one person to fill the slot - like was the case with Eduardo in this last election.  If there were more than one, voting has always been done.

Evan, were there ever cases where there were more candidates than slots and consensus was used?  Alan

#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.
