There’s clearly a potential tension here that may not be resolved to everyone’s satisfaction.  For the 1Net SC to only act as a conduit to LOG per Seun, there’d have to be agreement on which peak associations/networks can nominate.  But we see not only with CS but also business that there are folks saying who decided that only xyz peak association/network can nominate?  So if the SC simply passes along those nominations, it may get accused of deciding to exclude others, thereby demonstrating that 1Net is a grand design of dark unaccountable forces to control the universe, etc.

If instead we say ok anyone can nominate and the 1Net SC should do due diligence and select to ensure diversity and inclusion per Avri, then the SC has to pick among contending nominations.  In which case it may get accused of deciding to exclude others, thereby demonstrating that 1Net is a grand design of dark unaccountable forces to control the universe, etc.

As a member of the SC, I’m not excited about the prospect of us being put in position where we will stand accused no matter what we do.  Volunteering to try and help facilitate a process shouldn’t require body armor.  I hope that the stakeholder groups can either come to some internal consensus on who nominates on their behalf, or agree to accept that the SC will do its best to select if they can’t reach consensus themselves.  Please let’s try to avoid another stage of representational train wrecks so we can all start to focus on the Sao Paulo agenda.  The LOG has asked for substantive inputs on the agenda by March 1.

Coincidentally, this still sum up to 20, as it's important that those who were nominated to coordinate/steer 1Net represent at the br event for proper reporting, follow-up and accountability. So the 1Net committee should just determine how they split into the HLMC and EMC for the one time br event.
