I watched the vids from Fanfest recently, and particularly the CSM one. During it, it was mentioned that new members to the CSM often have a ton of catching up to do on issues, especially those covered by the NDA which they have no access to prior to starting their term in office. I think the quote was 1 or 2 months before they get up to speed and fully productive.

It seems to me, that being the case, that a change to the election process is in order then. I'd shift the election a month or two earlier.

When the winners are announced, they sign the NDA soon after that, and essentially take on the powers of the alternates in the current CSM (with the exception of active participation in the current CSM meetings). Essentially that would give them CSM forum access to catch up on things, and the right to sit in on any CSM/CCP online meetings silently. It would also give them a chance to talk to discuss issues with the current CSM, even the ones covered by NDA which would make such talks impossible currently.

At the very least that should give the new upcoming council time to settle in and get prepared for the start of their term. The first meeting in Iceland follows so soon after the term starts, that it only makes sense to me that the more prepared and up to date the new council is ahead of time, the more productive the meeting will be for everyone involved.

While this is a valid concern, I think it is becoming less of one as the CSM evolves. In the case of the CSM5->6 handover, we not only had two CSM5 members re-elected (myself and Meissa), but Mynxee prepared a detailed transition document, and the outgoing CSM5 members kept their access to the internal forums during the transition (I think they finally are losing it this week).

What I would recommend is revisiting this issue in 6 months, and if the current CSM thinks a bit more transition time is needed, then we will make a recommendation to CCP in that regard.
