Election Terms

From 2.5.2: "During the election process, the Facilitator will specify a term for each election."

Does anyone have experience enacting a policy to handle this differently? What should the Facilitator be considering when deciding on the term length? It feels weird to me for some reason, as the Facilitator, to be the one to determine this.

Doesn't really matter because anyone can call for an election at any governance meeting so the term just doesn't matter... I often propose 6 months or 1 year.

That's a great point, thanks.


We used IDP to decide the term and reached a consensus for 6 months

What's IDP? #newbie
