[rpd] PDWG situation without co-chairs

Mon Feb 8 20:52:24 UTC 2021

Hi all,

We are in a very strange situation now.

We have no co-chairs, we have no meetings (because the Covid) so elections could take place.

The Recall Committee suggested that the section 3.3 of the CPM shall take effect (if the working group chair is unable to serve his or her full term the WG may select a replacement to serve the remainder of the term).

The Recall Committee report already suggested that the PDWG should work on this and coordinate with the board.

Guys, this is our "problem" as a community. Remember that the board is only helping the community here organizing the elections.

Is not the board who choose the candidates and elects them it is our tasks. Remember that without co-chairs, we can't advance with our work. Who takes care of ensuring a profitable discussion in the list for any policy proposal (and we have many in the table), or even ensuring that there is not any abuse or bad behavior during this period?

I will like to propose a few ideas and I hope that others also do the same. Remember that this is transition period:

1) Ask the board to choose among previous co-chairs that already have proven experience (and hopefully they accept).
2) Nominate ourselves those previous co-chairs.
3) A combination of both 1 and 2 above (example, board nominates one, the community another).
4) Instead of looking for a temporary replacement, asking the board to organize elections in a maximum of 4-6 weeks, using the same procedure that was prepared for the last time and using the same electoral census.

If we want to board to hear us and take a decision, we should try to reach consensus *among us* without co-chairs. I know it seems difficult, but I'm convinced that at difficult times, this community will be able to work together.

Eddy, I will love to hear also what you have to say, or if the board already has worked out something, etc.

Thanks in advance!
