[eDebate] I want to be on the topic committtee

Actually, a quick check of the CEDA Constitution shows that the Nominating Committee has NOTHING to do with the election of at-large reps to the Topic Committee.  The Constitution specifies that the Nominating Committee gets first crack at the other offices (including regional reps); the By-Laws specify that the at-large positions on the Topic Committee are to be elected through an open election with nominations solicited at the fall meeting.--Neil

  now its not my official announcement per se, but it is my public intent to be considered for the next cycle of nominations, at the summer meeting i talked to several members of the ec about being nominated and the conversation went something like this 

  A: hey i would be interested in being on the topic committee
  EC member: Cool well, that goes through the nominating committee
  A: Ok i want to be nominated.
  EC: Well its not that easy its "x person's" turn next then there is somebody in line after that 


  i dont think i am misrepresenting too badly...i think the conveyed intent of this process is a little anti democratic, i would like to discuss that part of the process. I dont think it is an unjustifiable approach and i dont think there is an ironclad prohibition against someone not in line running, but there at least seems a tendency, can we discuss it.
