since we are talking about it - here is the proposal - it would have come out in the next few days anyway

Current bylaws text in Article II section 3:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Any vacancy for a Board seat filled by election shall be filled by including the open seat in the next regular election or selection process for that seat after the vacancy occurs so long as a call for nominations has not been announced. If an election includes seats with terms or remaining terms that are unequal in length, then the seat with the longest term shall be filled by the candidate receiving the most votes, the seat with the next longest term shall be filled by the candidate receiving the next most votes, and so on.
 
Any vacancy for a board seat filled by the Internet Engineering Task Force shall be filled by the Internet Engineering Task Force using a process of their own choosing.
 
Any Trustee elected or appointed by the above processes to fill a vacancy will hold office commencing at the start of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) following their election or appointment.


Proposal:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
remove "or selection" from the first sentence of the first paragraph.
Reason:

to be consistent with proposed change to Article 2 section 1.


Proposal: replace 2nd paragraph with the following:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Any vacancy for a Board seat filled by the Internet Engineering Task Force shall be filled by including the open seat in the next regular appointment process for that seat after the vacancy occurs so long as a call for candidates has not been announced. If an appointment process includes seats with terms or remaining terms that are unequal in length, then Internet Engineering Task Force shall decide which appointment is to receive which term though a mechanism of its own choosing.


Reason:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
to remove the confusion that would result if the IETF were to fill a vacancy and the selection would not be able to be seated until the next AGM and to make the vacancy processes consistent for all trustees
