Further to last month’s post, in order to give the community more time to participate in selecting a new Council member for the 2024 term, this post marks the beginning of a one-week open nomination period.
During this time, interested community members are encouraged to nominate themselves for consideration as the next Council member by replying directly to this post. Please include a brief summary of:
- your background, relevant professional history, and/or experience with Orca or crypto or governance generally;
- unique benefits you would bring to the Council;
- how you would represent the interests of the Orca community; and
- what you think the Council’s top priorities should be for 2024.
As a reminder, Council members play an important role in Orca’s governance process. To do the job well, it’s important that Council members share several qualities: (i) they have deep experience in crypto and are knowledgeable about Orca; (ii) they have the bandwidth to carry out their responsibilities in a timely fashion; and (iii) they have high integrity, good character, and a firm commitment to represent the best interests of the ORCA tokenholder community.
Council members are expected to regularly attend meetings, timely vote on Council proposals and other preliminary matters, participate in asynchronous communications, maintain the confidentiality of non-public information, uphold the bylaws, and, most importantly, represent the best interests of the ORCA tokenholder community. Council members are asked to serve for the entire twelve-month term, and any candidates selected to run for election will be required to pass an identity verification screen per Orca’s Anti-Money-Laundering policy.
The Council is thrilled to bring on a new voice and looks forward to reviewing all interested nominees. Community members who do not want to serve on the Council are still encouraged to share their thoughts on the potential candidates below. The open nomination period will end at 11:59 p.m. GMT on January 16, 2024, after which interested candidates will be invited to participate in a live Discord discussion on January 25, 2024, to discuss their candidacy with the Orca community.
After the live Discord discussion, the Council will review all candidate submissions and communicate next steps.
