I will be adding this item to the Agenda.

I suggest that we try to gather nominees/volunteers before the meeting  
and that, if possible, we decide during the meting.  If we cannot come  
to consensus on this during the meeting, we can set up a voting  
mechanism where the top two nominees are chosen.

I do not believe there is need for restricting this role to the  
council and given the amount of work we need to do, it might be best  
if we can find not council members for this work.  I suggest that  
names be sent to the list, though if people prefer, I can receive the  
names and put out a list before the meeting.
