Dear all,

I have been a little overwhelmed with other work-related stuff but wanted
to agree with Stephanie on this. And, despite the fact that our charter
does not forbid this kind of situation, I think its somehow problematic
that the two are holding these positions and might see themselves in a
little conflict of interest at some point.

I think we could chat with them, maybe, in order to try to understand what
is their plan for standing for both ALAC and NCSGs interest in the
mentioned spaces and - next time - try to avoid this from happening from
the selection moment. But we would then of course have to overcome the
volunteer shortage we are in.

best,
B
