+1 to this suggestion as one term limit would give other capable members of
the community the opportunity to serve.

of Directors who may work for the same organisation.

+1 as we need to make sure we avoid the capture of the organisation by an
entity. No single company nepotism should be tolerated.

The non regional representation needs to be revisited if some of this
occurances of 2 aspiring candidates from same country keep happening.

This year 2 nominated candidates from the same country were elected to the
board  as directors and i believe this has happened before and ought to be
avoided if we are to really champion spirit of diversity.

New bylawys should somehow give nomcom guidance on how to avoid slating 2
