|DISCUSSION ON HOW TO PROMOTE DIRECT (TRUE) DEMOCRACY|
WDDM Executive Board will post all its dealings in this forum for the scrutiny of the members.
Thanks Mirek, the electoral process would depend on Webmaster process, as well as posting various minutes etc.
However the process of election must be written into a repeatable form that all know how to do and can refer to the document if necessary for review.
It is also necessary to discuss the secret or open ballot. I believe the Board must be able to elect to have a secret ballot when the Board deems necessary. For instance if an ethics matter of a member is in process. Officer elections etc. should be secret or people may feel obliged to vote for friends etc.
This should come from the Board. If the Board asks for help from members, good luck. That is why we have a Board. We do NOT have that many participating members. Another reason membership criteria is needed.
There could be a WDDM Mail list membership "WDDM Open" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, This could be for WDDM supporters, people interested in our "news" but who do not care to be involved with the mechanics of the Organization. I belong to many organizations as an email subscriber. This shows my support. I do not want to be an officer or take part in their business meetings. I am sure there are many who are now considered active WDDM members who only want a email.
The active people would meet the membership criteria which needs to be written by the board.
These things need to be done before we begin to expand our work in any way.
