Dear Sara
many thanks for this draft. I haven’t had time to look at it in detail but I have modified the text around Raed’s resignation and Jeremy’s substitution as it needs some explanation.
I have already changed the text. But for your information, this is what i added
Finally, Raed Sharif has informed us that he will step down from TAB at the end of November 2019. We are very grateful for his service to the community on TAB.
Based on RDA governance policies for TAB elections, TAB members can resign at any time during their term. If a place on the TAB is vacated during a person’s term, Council will determine how that slot will be filled.
In this instance, Council has invited Jeremy Geelen to substitute Raed and he has kindly accepted. We warmly welcome Jeremy to TAB and thank him for accepting the invitation.

Luigi, can you please also add this to the slider? Due to the Christmas break, I have set the end date for the community review to 9 Jan 2020, so, longer than usual.
