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