The PASS Board Election Review Committee

 [cross-posted from Andy Leonard's blog - Nov. 24]

...

 

I want the PASS Board to trust and respect the community. I would like to see the PASS Board Elections process and procedures reflect trust in and respect for the community.

I hope the Elections Review Committee is able to move the PASS Board in this direction.

PASS Update #47 - Election Review Committee

[cross-posted from Andy Warren's blog - Nov. 16]

Early last week Joe Webb announced on this blog that he will be the chair of the PASS Election Review Committee (ERC). Read his post for some his thoughts, and then I want to share here some background on why we formed the committee and some of the challenges we face.

We heard clearly from the PASS membership that the 2010 election could have been handled better. As I’ve written previously we did a lot of work following the 2009 election with regards to transparency, but in hindsight we didn’t do enough to fix a more serious problem – a lack of details around the scoring and review process used by the Nomination Committee. We can’t undo the problems we encountered, but we can work on doing better in 2011, and now at least we have a deeper understanding of the core problems that need to be addressed.

It took a bit of time to get things rolling on the ERC. It started with a good discussion within the Board about who should lead it. Not whether we should do a review, that was easily agreed to, but I felt strongly that appointing someone from outside the Board to head the committee would send a strong signal about our intent to do better in 2011...

SQL PASS Election Review Committee

[cross-posted from Wendy Pastrick's blog - Nov. 22]

Things have mostly settled down after some of the upset felt from the last Board of Directors election. Now that the Annual Summit is over and the newly elected Board members have been introduced, it's time to move forward. 

How do we, as members of a vibrant technical community, ensure the success and growth of our organization? Is it the best idea to continue a popularity contest to choose our future Board Members? Does that serve our organization the best way possible? What happens if no one runs for the Board and there are empty seats? What happens if no qualified candidates submit to serve? What happens if we have 100 amazing candidates to choose from? How much transparency do people really want?

A bevy of questions...none with immediate answers. In part, this is the task of the newly appointed Election Review Committee...

The Future of PASS Elections

[cross-posted from Joe Webb's blog post - Nov. 8]

Am I stirring up a hornets nest or beating a dead horse bringing up a the PASS elections the day before over 2,500 SQL Server professional converge on Seattle for the 2010 PASS Community Summit? I’m not sure, but I suspect I’ll find out within 24 hours.

So, why would I revisit a topic that was so prevalent and divisive in the SQL community just a few short months ago?  Well, I’ll tell you...
