[council] NC Chair Election and new resolution

I offer the following resolution about the need for a discussion, aside from
the election at hand, about issues and topics such as "rotation", terms of
office, etc.  

I support Caroline Chicoine's resolution that the NC hold the election for a
6 month term chair; just so there is every disclosure about my personal
views, I do support waiving the present rules so that Philip Sheppard can
stand for this term. Other candidates may also choose to stand. 

The above are explanatory comments. What follows is a new resolution: 

The purpose of this post is to propose, separately from the election of a
chair for 6 months, that after said election, that the NC should have an
extensive discussion about 1)term of office 2) succession 3) rotation as a
concept versus qualifications 4)removal of chair 5) whether a vice chair is
a good idea and any other related issues  

That discussion should be undertaken outside of the immediacy of this
election.  I offer this as a resolution for consideration at the 2/14 NC
