RE: [] EAC Minutes - Aug 14



Your understanding is basically correct, although the Bylaws are even more specific: it is the Executive Director who designates additional AC, PC and RC members.


The process you describe looks good. A few (hopefully helpful) suggestions:


·         Rather than the EMO asking the candidate if they are willing to accept the invitation post facto, why doesn’t the nominator check with them beforehand?

·         Should there be some form of vote on the candidates? E.g. a minimum of three +1’s and no -1’s? I don’t feel strongly about this, but it does seem like the proposed approach lacks some “explicitness” (if that is a word J).

Hi Mike,


my current understanding is, that only the EMO can appoint members,

and the council itself can propose members to the EMO to get appointed.

Therefore, the way we did this last year (and I think it was a good way

to do it), was this:


1. Existing EAC members proposed names of new members on the

    list, asking the other EAC members whether they thought it would

    be good candidates.


2. Candidate proposals are discussed on the mailing list,


3. If disucssion is positive, candidates are proposed to the EMO

    for appointment.


4. The EMO asks candidates whether they would accept their

    invitation to the EAC, and if yes, appoints them.


Does this sound good as a process, or am I missing something?

Or are there ways to simplify the process?

I am curious if “Everyone to propose new members on the mailing list” really means “appoint them to the architecture council”?
