Thanks for your thoughts.

I can’t comment about historical aspects as I have only been a member a few


You or the person nominated are at liberty to go public and post the
nomination to the list. 

It is the voting officer who will not do so.


Is it best to be bold and nominate at the beginning, or perhaps in the
middle,  or in the last few minutes at the very end when you know who the
opposition is or isnt?


I am not convinced it is a good idea to add the time dimension to the
nominating process.

Hi everyone,


I would like te reiterate that I find it very odd that as a group, we prefer
to have private nominations.


If I am willing to support someone, I have no qualms about making that
support public. Moreover, I find it troublesome that as a BC member, I do
not know until the nomination deadline has passed whether someone has been
nominated for a position or not.


I am left with having to try to read into a reminder message such as this
one whether it is being sent two days before the deadline because there have
been no nominations, or because it's just two days before the deadline.


And if I did know what nominations had been made, especially if none had
been made, I might be spurred on to reach out to other potential candidates
and try to get them on board. But with the current private nomination
system, I just don't know.


Is there a historical reason for having private nominations? Do others feel,
like I do, that it's time to put an end to the secrecy and to run fully
transparent election processes?
