Thomas Robinson Posted March 3, 2022 Share Posted March 3, 2022 A number of people (myself included) applied to join the GLVIA Panel following the LI call for two new members. I have been told a vote was taken on who from the applicants should be elected to the panel and that I failed, which is fair enough. But thinking about this further, the lack of any knowledge of the process is disrespectful to members who stood and the lack of transparency makes the very idea of an election questionable. So can I ask the following: Who stood; who was elected; who voted; what was the voting system; and given that there was no attempt to organise hustings for the candidates, how on Earth were the voting decisions made? I cannot be the only candidate who did not know anyone on the panel. I asked informally for this information and was told the information was in some way impossible to release without breaching the privacy of other candidates. That doesn't make any sense to me. So I would be grateful if others who stood would also ask the Institute for clarity. Secret elections vitiate the point of elections. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
