We believe its not a good idea for the Board to make any exceptions on the Geographic requirements. This opens the possibility of emerging nations being kept out further. We should rather be enforcing participation by all regions and not making exceptions to it.
Every constituency of the NC should have NO difficulty finding capable persons from all the regions. However, if we permit exceptions inadequate outreach effort will be made to include the Regions.
>FURTHER RESOLVED, that Section 3(c) of Article VI-B of the Bylaws of the Corporation is >hereby replaced in its entirety with the following:
>"Each Constituency shall select up to three individuals to represent that Constituency on the >NC, no two of which may be, except with the consent of the Board, residents of the same >Geographic Region, as defined in Article V, Section 6. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no >Constituency may have more representatives on the NC than there are members of the >Constituency. Nominations within each Constituency may be made by any member of the >Constituency, but no such member may make more than one nomination in any single >Constituency."
