  Strongly agreed.  The nomination process should approve all qualified nominees, and not be “guiding" nominees into positions.  Nor appear to be doing so.

  I’m involved with a nonprofit that overly guides the nomination process, reducing the choice to the members.  The reason given for these type of processes is always, “we have to do this to prevent bad people from getting on the board”, but unfortunately, doing this puts you into the “bad people” group.  And ultimately this behaviour creates an insular board detached from their own mission and members.

  Agreed.  Support submitted.
