Thank you Laura! I added my insights in the PAD.

Much worth mentioning once again a big thanks to the work you have been developing at the OKFN Central!

As you know, we're starting the search for a new executive, and I wanted to give you a heads-up about the process and progress.

The board of directors is setting up a recruitment committee who will work with an exec search firm to find the right person.  The board are in the process of selecting a search firm at present.

We want to appoint a community representative to the recruitment committee so that the global Open Knowledge network is involved in the recruitment.  Local group and working group leads have been invited to send nominations for the community representative and to contribute to developing the criteria which should be considered in selection. Ideas and nominations are being gathered on an etherpad: https://pad.okfn.org/p/International_Council_special, and comments from the Advisory Council on the ideas for criteria, and suggestions for other names which should be considered would be most welcome. The call for input is open until Thursday October 16th.  The community group leaders will then select their representative.

We'll keep you updated around progress in the coming weeks. Do let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Best regards,
