  1. pull existing volunteers into leadership roles at the board level

    If you want to grow new leaders you must give them opportunity on the global stage to grow. There is no reason we cant have more people invloved in committees at the board level. For instance, allowing a group of volunteers to evaluate the elections processes instead of pushing this work back to the board.

      use twitter/livemeeting etc to allow for the candidates and those interested to have a live interaction.

      • Validate & reform "who" can vote in the elections

        This isnt a process item but it definetly needs to be addressed. The process by which PASS hands out ballots is flawed. The requirement of PASS only needing an email address to issue a ballot is wrong. PASS should require more info from members to allow voting in the elections. Something perhaps like name & email or maybe name, address & email. As it is there is apparently no way to keep someone with 1000 gmail accounts from gaming the system

        • From Log Hut to the White House

          I feel, it is extremely important for benefit of the organization that the nomination follow like our National Election Process. For example, I knew absolutely nobody who stood up for elections last year. Of course it was fun meeting almost all of them at the Board Q&A at Seattle Conference. But I would really like to see us divided by regions or even chapters like Boston(as in my case). Say we have 50 chapters, let each chapter nominate one person. How they can do it locally is something we can discuss in another forum.
          Then, if we have less than…

          • Do away with the nom com elections

            It would seem we could allow members to nominate themselves for the nom com and then allow those who recieved the outstanding volunteer award in the last 12 months to select the 3 nomcom members

            • reduce the election time window

              The amount of time from "approved slate" to elections completed is too long. 2 -2.5 weeks should be adequate time to have an election after the slate is announced

              • Why bother with a NomCom? What is the value add?

                Doing away with the NomCom would eliminate a step of the process and the power of that group is negligible. Put out a strict criteria for those that can run and let them run. Just have one or two people vet the information in their submission documentation.

                • Should the Nom Com rank candidates?

                  Do you think the Nom Com should provide a ranking on candidates? Is this a helpful guide when voting or do you think it is a subjective view that prejudices the electorate? Should the Nom Com provide more information rather than a rank? Strengths and weaknesses for example. Your input here would be really appreciated!

                  Cheers, JRJ
