Hello ONAP TSC Members: We should close on this topic in the near future. To that end, please consider this an attempt to get an email dialog going that will hopefully lead to us voting on what to say and where to put it.
>From discussions that we've had... and I'm sure some level of personal bias from me, I suggest the following as a Policy (not part of the TSC-Charter) to be posted on the TSC Policies and Guidelines Page: *Leadership Diversity Policy * We as a community wish to foster a breadth of knowledgeable and engaged leaders, as well as ensure an ongoing diverse set of viewpoints across the ONAP Project. In support of this goal, we recommend that a single individual should not hold more than one Chair, or Vice Chair position concurrently on the TSC and all other TSC Subcommittees. There may be situations warranting an exception to this policy. On a case-by-case basis the TSC may determine to waive this requirement as appropriate. Please let me know what you think... and/or suggest alternate wording. Best, Phil.
