I agree, also in some places there are already summer vacations. Perhaps
end of September is a better target, with a deadline for nominations by
end of August.

I hereby nominate Fons Adriansen (kokkinizita), Milkii Brewster
(https://libreav.org/), and Nils Hilbricht (https://sonoj.org/).

Given their diverse talents in community management, software
development, web-design and conference organization, they may also make
a good team to push the consortium forward.

according to http://linuxaudio.org/policy.html

"Should a management decision be put to a vote, each representative will
have one vote, with the Chair having a casting vote in the event of a tie."

Various members have announced their resignation already a few years ago.
