While I’m still working on my response to the proposed CIRA government changes, I noticed that CIRA had published a presentation on Slideshare highlighting the changes. I’ve embedded it below.
One issue I noticed is that most of the public comments so far, including Michael Geist, Kevin McArthur and myself jumped on the change that the Nominating Committee is now pre-selecting all of the candidates, which I still believe isn’t that great, but it is worth looking at the background and which changes can or should be done. More about this later today.
Thanks to Paul Andersen, the chair of the CIRA Board of Directors to take some time to talk to me yesterday and outline more of the board’s thought process. He also published a post on CIRA’s blog about the topic yesterday.
