Out of curiosity: who was the last "Caribbean" candidate for the board, how
did they do on votes compared to the other candidates that election, and
would anyone who voted in that election but did not vote for that candidate
mind offering some quick comments about why they voted for other candidates

If well qualified candidates from a region never or almost never run,
that's a very different problem than the membership turning down diverse

Also, where are current board members from?

Current populations:
Canada: 35M
Carribean: 44M
US: 326M

So, if the 7 board seats were divvied by population served, 6 would be from
the U.S. and the 7th would alternate between Canada and the Carribean.

Then we have to ask about where in the U.S.... I'd wager California is
overrepresented on the board.
