History of campaign events


During the Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections, several community members said they would like to have conversations where candidates answer questions from the community.

In 2021, the Movement Strategy and Governance team supporting the Board election tried something similar. These types of events were not typical during Board elections. The events came from an idea to provide the community members with more opportunities to interact with the candidates. The number of candidates, short planning time, and trying to serve too many time zones led to chaotic events. Thank you to everyone who participated and provided feedback to improve the process for 2022.

Revision for the 2022 Board of Trustees Election


Community members can learn more about candidates during the 2022 Board of Trustees election. Candidates will record videos answering 6 community-selected questions. Community members are encouraged to propose questions by 25 July 2022 and endorse the questions they would like to see included in the videos by 26 July 2022.
