In order to round-out the council, we have decided to bring in alternates to each group of the council. These are folks who were just shy of winning enough votes for the seat. If a council member steps down or is removed, an alternate will be bumped up to fill the vacant seat.
Alternates will have full access to council activities and are encouraged to participate in meetings, discussions, beta testing. However, for the few areas of council interactions that include voting, alternates will not be asked for a vote. Additionally, alternates cannot run for an executive seat.
