Hi Paul,

I'm with you that WHEREAS 2 as originally suggested should be improved. 
However expressing or describing hopes in a motion seems to bring in some 
subjectivity which is difficult to assess. So I wonder whether this could be 

2.    The subsequent call for volunteers resulted in the decision to extend 
the selection process.

Best regards

Thanks James. How about we strike it as written, and just say "whereas the 
volume of responses to the request for applications for the role was less 
robust than hoped for."
