Nominations are still open, but if you nominate someone I'll immediately refer to this mail
and ask for a statement by 10 January too.

area. This can be very good, since the project is huge and the Chair might miss some details.
For example, Hagar often updates the draft quarterly report with information about the Forum
(figures, issues...). If the Chair knows that someone commits to follow a certain area closely
and to help in reporting, then reporting becomes a team work and can be much better than what
we have done so far.
