[okfn-advisory] FW: [okfn-discuss] Terms of reference for the board of directors

This reminds me that having both a "Board" and an "Advisory Board" causes a
bit of confusion - and, for me, a certain amount of difficulty explaining to
the World Bank that I am not on the Board of OKFN and therefore have no
structural conflict of interest (I cannot be a beneficiary of World Bank
grants).  "Advisory Council?"

Thanks very much,

There is slight confusion as to which Board is being referred to - the
document talks about Boards (including the Advisory Board) and then "the
Board". It may be useful to make this explicit by "the main Board" or "the
Board of directors". Or it may be useful to have a separate document for
Advisory Board.

Also in phrases such as:

"Board members may join the board from time to time", it may be useful to
use "new Board Members" and "current Board members".

This is all more long winded, but I misread bits of it.
