Wasn't this magazine supposed to be about exploring? Caves? And unexplored terrain on the planet?

Hi OSGeo Oceania board,

Our Constitution says:

*In order to implement staggered terms [...] half of the newly-elected
> Directors will be appointed to a half term of one year. These Directors
> will volunteer or be chosen by random selection.*
>

The purpose of this is to make sure that in future, annual board elections
will only be for half the positions, to make sure there's continuity across
years.

By way of a process, I propose this:

   1. Directors volunteer for 1 year terms (with 2 years being the default).
   2. If needed to re-balance, we draw straws
   <https://www.dsrw.org/~dlg/web/straws.php> to ensure we have half for
   each of 1 & 2 year terms. Since we have 9 directors this will be 4/5 or
   5/4. We can draw straws at our board meeting this coming Thursday.

For example:

   - 2 directors volunteer for a 1 year term: draw 2 straws from the
   remaining 7 directors, and the short straws take a 1 year term -> 5 @ 2
   years, 4 @ 1 year
   - 6 directors volunteer for a 1 year term: draw 1 straw from those 6
   directors, and the short straw takes a 2 year term -> 4 @ 2 years, 5 @ 1
   year

Sound fair?

I'm happy to volunteer for a 1 year term.

Cheers
John

Hi Eterna

This list is for communication about the open source geospatial community in Oceania. Some of us enjoy unexplored terrain, but that's not the focus. 

You can unsubscribe at the bottom of this page:

...and we'll see if we can add a more convenient unsubscribe link in future.
