    Methinks the entire process – starting from electing the Nomination Committee through to voting – at the AGM and for the Board – needs critical and independent review. I have heard stories – from the inside, from a whistleblower – that makes my hair stand up on end.

    I have heard serious issues with sign in. That should not be acceptable for an IT shop such as CIRA.

    I personally had problems at the AGM. It was only as it was ending that I was allowed in!

    Board candidates and members who elect them, should ask

    • why it takes CIRA 5 days to determine who won the election (polls close oct 4th and the results known by Oct 9th.
    • why any complaints about the election process go through management first – not the Board
    • why CIRA doesn’t post the coordinates of the Returning Officer – the independent one – for members to voice their concerns directly (Not have their mail opened first!)
    • why the CEO can weigh in as to who sits on the Nomination Committee, who then in turn select candidates for members to vote on

    Much room for improvement
