I just think this is unnecessary. The board members have all indicated
that they WANT to hear and follow the wishes of the CCs in the SW/SC
region. What is the fear, Teresa?

It will take 2/3 of the board members to confirm an appointment. IF it
were to happen that 2/3 of the board members choose to ignore the wishes of
the CCs and vote for a lesser choice, then you would also already have the
2/3 necessary to reverse a decision. I just can't imagine why you are so
worried about this.
