Dear All,

you will have seen the announcement below.

You'll notice that nominations are made for several positions:

Two Vice Chairs
Representative from a Region

These are part of the current Rules of Procedure AL/2007/1/1.Rev 11

As you know, several Task Forces, working as part of the Rules of
Procedure Working Group, are re-writing the by-laws and the officer
positions are set to be changed completely. As a result, it is unlikely
that the positions above have any meaning as such. While it is
anticipated that there might be two Vice Chairs, the Task Force might
choose that there would be one Chair and four other representatives who
might rotate the Vice Chair positions. This is still unknown. What is
known is that once the new Rules of Procedure are voted, some positions
might become obsolete as such.

Personally, in the two years I have been Chair, I have not followed a
strict hierarchy with members of the Nominating Committee. While in
formal cases of running a meeting, according to Robert's Rules of
Procedure, a Vice Chair has taken over in my absence, the Rapporteur
position was never used and I considered input from all ExCom
representatives on an equal level.

Kind regards,
