Not wearing any cap as I write this email.
Jordi: *2.2 Be (or employed by) an AFRINIC resource-holder*
I wish to disagree with your point on this particular one as you might be
making it stringent for any volunteer in the community to participate
irrespective of affiliation.
Another infered view could be that a co-chair could be sponsored by an
organization with an organizational interest in the case where they are
sponsoring or co-authoring a policy. Being a sponsored organizational
co-chair could be that the individual would have to serve his/her
organization due to KPR they have to fulfill.
I would rather we use the approach,
2.2. The preferred candidate/volunteer should be nominated by any AFRINIC
resource holder while the candidate is expected to declare any conflict of
interest emanating from such nomination.
That way we can keep a tab on the policies they chair and how they arrive
at such decisions while making inferences to organizational interests.
