If you’ve been under a rock the last few weeks you may not know that PASS is currently undergoing their board elections process. I’m not going to rehash the entire saga here but this is just a quick post to let everyone know about a great resource PASS has put together for the elections: The elections portal.
Last year the general community voiced their concerns about transparency in the elections process and this year the folks at PASS HQ have poured a lot of hard work in helping make those wishes a reality. The election portal is your one-stop-shop for all things elections-related including:
- Candidate profiles and interviews
- FAQ on how the process works
- Documentation used by the BOD and NomComm during the process
- Official scores and votes
- And last but not least…A FORUM!
Why do I stress that last one? Well in the last few weeks there has been quite a stir in the community over the choices made for the final slate of candidates. In the wake of that decision many have taken to their blogs and stated their thoughts. You can actually see a running list of all those blog posts at elections site as well! I highly encourage you to sign in to the forum and ask your questions. Be active. This year has shown us not only the flaws in the process, but more importantly how PASSIONATE we all are about this community.
