This does not make sense. The existing trustees are *entirely* responsible for the trustee selection process, including ensuring a transparent and well governed process if nominations are taken. As an unlikely example, if the only nominations that get through to the board were nominated and on the personal network of one current trustee, then yes, the rest of the board of trustees must know that a conflict of interest was at play, rather than presuming that an unbiased process happened without you understanding it or caring about it. It's been said before, there is no possible reason for this information to be secret. Please publish it or give a real explanation of why it must be kept a secret rather than "because we want to" or "because it was always kept a secret".
