Thanks for providing these clarification points.

In this case, when the chair lost connectivity, vice-chair unable to chair
the session and Aminata was disconnected, why was Kris chosen to chair to
avoid any COI, while the 3 board members and candidates were out?
“The Chairman lost connectivity at 16:48 UTC, KS acted as Chairman to avoid
any conflict of interest in the review of candidates.”
>>In both cases, I believe that it was a mistake for the minutes to omit
If it is a mistake, it is an unacceptable one.
9 board members are elected to oversee the operation of this organization
and must assume their responsibilities in high standard.
It is surprising that such minutes passed the board minutes management
process which must include, minutes taking, review by board members and
approval at the succeeding meeting.
Anyway, we look forward to the corrected minutes for the 11th may meeting.
