yes! board competence matter most. i think every year we should check
quality of applicant for board seat to give indication of AFRINIC community

if someone apply for board position and post CV of his technical skills and
show nothing like

- he have manage a team before
- he know how create, communicate and deploy strategy
- he have expertise in some area of benefit to the company (internet law,
big connections with international political organisation etc)
- active participation in AFRINIC community. note that following are not
active participation at this level of someone who want to be board
          +1, +2, +100 in mailing list
            "i support last speaker
           professional attender of meeting by sponsorship or i.e.
sponsored conference tourism

we should also see if this person has ever challenge higher authority (as
board member you must be confortable challenge and disagree with CEO and
other 'big' people.
