By the way, last I checked "liaisons" are "not voting members." In
one of the nomcoms I was in, the liaisons were allowed to vote in
straw polls. It was a terrible idea. It negates the checks and
balances we have put into the nomcom process, for instance no more
than 2 people from the same affiliation should be in the nomcom,
especially in a voting capacity.
What!!!! The liaisons are there to provide additional information,
not directly influence the outcome.
Do you have more information on this? If this is true, I think the
result from that Nomcom is questionable. I think this needs to be
investigated and the result be made public.
I realize that we can't go back in time, but it needs to be clear to
current and future nomcom's that this is a major violation of the
nomcom process and should not be repeated.
