Well everyone on the current board has been elected from not being on the board and once we are elected to the board you really don't see that much of what we do even now we take minutes because its mostly dealing with private issues.
why do you want the membership to have to guess how you perform your elected position? do not be afraid of accountability. it is what keeps us honest.
When most of the important issues we are dealing with are in the areas of conflict resolution yes your going to have to guess although a reasonable indication might be that conflicts are generally being resolved without turning into hate threads on public mailing lists.
If you are only electing board members based on the 10% of there activities that you actually see you are probably choosing them on the wrong criteria.
then except for your "resume" presented when running for election, there is for the most part only "wrong criteria" on which to make a decision.
I would like to know how you vote on those issues which can be made public w/o damage to someone's character or violation of a non-disclosure.
is that so hard?
and I believe that *most* of the membership would agree.
we don't want dirty underwear.
I would say it depends on the topic. Sometimes we have to discuss. Another topic needs only 1 time reading, hearing different opinions in some small sentences and after that you can have the decision.
The Board exist with different people you have elected. So we can have different opinions. If we have a 50:50 or 60:40 decision as a result, we follow the topic up a matter with a new discussion. If only 1 person votes against the decision, this person has to accept the voting of the others. That's democrazy. The only question is how much or what should be made public. Do we really want to read the name of the Board Member who voted against? Is that necessary? On the other side we have European rules like the new European privacy regulation. So we are not allowed to publish names without any agreement.
