​Dear Best Bits members,

Representatives has been approved by the current CSCG (included below).

Accordingly, it is now required to have 2 representatives from each member.

I call upon Best Bits organizational members to nominate names, or
individuals to nominate themselves by *Thursday,  August 18th. *

The endorsement period will run until *Monday,  August 22th,* and an
approval of the 2 Best Bits representatives will be until *Thursday, August

The appointed 2 Best Bits representatives will be working with other CSCG
members to select the new Chair, who will resume her/his task by September 1

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing Chair Ian
Peter, for his diligent work and for his wisdom in normalizing heated

Needing more information, please do not hesitate to reach me,

Best wishes,

Nadira AL Araj

Outgoing Representatives of Best Bits


*Each coalition member has two (2) representatives, chosen according to
their own internal processes, on the CSCG. *

*Each representative serves a term of two years, staggered so that there is
an annual replacement of one representative per coalition.*

*Representatives can serve two consecutive terms, but must then stand down
for at least 12 months before being eligible for further selection.*

*Replenishment should take place in September of each calendar year. (note:
for the initial establishment of member representatives in 2016, each
coalition should nominate which of its members should serve a two year
term, and which a one year term. Any time served prior to 2016 does not
count in new procedures being adopted))*

*The duties of members are to*

*1. Consider the interests of civil society as a whole*

*2. Serve on Nomcoms regularly as required*

*3. Communicate with their coalitions on CSCG developments*


*A Chair, and up to 2 Co-chairs, will be selected by CSCG member
representatives  for two year terms.*

*Each September (as necessary when chair and co-chair member terms expire),
the CSCG members will select Chairs and Co-chairs.*

*It is up to the CSCG to determine whether Chairs and Co-chairs are
selected from the CSCG membership, or whether mutually agreed to
representatives from broader civil society are approached to take on these
tasks. *

*Where an elected Chair is a coalition representative, the coalition will
be given the option to nominate a replacement representative.*
