Like I said in a very early post.  Other things need to be done like making
sure there is a diverse nomcom.  When the nomcom is as diverse as the
board, that's an issue.  We also need to deal with the fact that incombents
mostly run for re-election and they are always chosen as candidates.  Since
the number of candidates is limited, this also limits diversity choices and
favors re-election of incumbents.   I also think that the nomcom needs to
be given direction on candidates and diversity.  Maybe that has already
happened?  It is certainly not transparent if it has.

I am in favor of increasing the board size but not without some of these
other changes.
