Thanks Mat,
I've also asked for this and was refused by board/ED consensus.

Nominations for elections are generally open as per any democracy!!

>> Leaders,

While I have no role in the election process itself I would like to encourage a thoughtful discussion within our community.

>> What you want (and don't want) from your board members.
>> What questions do you want to ask candidates? 
>> What does an ideal board member look like to you?
>> What have you seen that is good and what needs to improve?
>> What is the balance of security expertise vs knowledge in running a non-profit that is ideal for a board member?

>> My hope is that the board election will be the end result of a good discussion and review of the candidates, their positions, and what they stand for.
>> In the end, the power of OWASP is our volunteers. The OWASP board role (and forth coming OWASP committees) are both groups that help advance the OWASP platform for everyone to succeed.
