LynnwoodBrown Lynnwood is an experienced committee man, and should make a good board member, Plus more representation from outside of Europe is good. CrawfordCurrie

For votes about people the vote should be anonymous to the degree it is practical. We will repeat the method from last year and simply send the votes by email to the two vote counters.
