PASS Election Review Committee

What is the ERC?

The Election Review Committee was formed by the PASS Board of Directors to address various issues related to the organization's elections procedure. The ERC is a completely independent committee comprised of five community members and two sitting Directors. The committee is chaired by Joe Webb, who blogged about its formation here.


The ERC's mission is to conduct an independent and interactive audit of the policies, procedures, and processes that govern the elections and, based upon that review, to deliver a set of recommendations to the Board of Directors.

In order to achieve its charter, the ERC will be engaging in discussion with any and all PASS members who have a vested interest in the elections process. You can read more about ways you can contact the ERC below.
