Replacing Section F of the Charter

Here is a reasonable solution to the so-called "alternate" problem.
Hopefully, now that the issue of me filling in for Kathy is entirely moot,
we can deal with the substance and forget about personal animosities. The
point of this amendment is to secure continuous and effective representation
for the NCC in the event of a resignation. This proposal actually works in
*favor* of regional representation. I will explain more about that, later.

Kent, please post this on the site along with your own proposal.

Replace section F in its entirety with the following:

F. Provision for Replacement of NC members

Name Council representatives may need to resign. In order to provide for a
quick, effective, and representative method of replacing the constituency's
NC members, the following section defines a replacement method. Each person
running for Names Council representative may choose a replacement candidate
with whom to run. The replacement candidate must be affiliated with an
organization that is a member of the NCC, and have the approval of that
organization to run. The replacement must be a citizen of the same
geographic region as the Names Council candidate. The names of the two
individuals shall be listed together on the voting ballot. A Names Council
candidate need not run with a replacement candidate.

The replacement candidate shall not be a member of the Names Council until
and unless the elected member formally resigns. If or when a resignation
takes place, the replacement candidate immediately succeeds the elected
candidate as the NC member for the rest of the original member's term.
