As discussed in the recent Board meeting there was an action for me to post on the process for rotating new people in through the OKAU Board.
My suggestion was that two people each 3 month period would be obliged to vacate their their position. At this time any other nominations would be received for the positions. Those who previously held the position would also be available for nomination. As such, reelection of the previous Board members could happen if no other nominations were received, assuming they had put themselves up for nomination.
There are around 8 board members at this point so this sort of process would allow for a complete renewal/reinstatement of the Board each 12 month period.
Views were expressed from others on the existing Board that such a rapid or recurring rotation of Board members may be disruptive. Other suggestions included four, six or 12 month rotations for facilitating a similar process.
This blog post intends to collect comments from the OKAU community on what processes could be considered. If a number of processes are nominated then a public upvote process can be used to determine the approach that will be taken (at least in a trial format).
Sound ok? Please leave your comments!
