eHustings for CILIP Councillors 2012

The shortened address for this post/league table is

This years elections for councillors to CILIP, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professional, are underway. Six candidates have chosen to put in the significant time and effort, and stand for four vacancies. Successful candidates will serve on Council from 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2014.

Here's the eHustings online forum, and here are the manifestos of the six candidates.

To calibrate (from a purely quantitative angle) responses, there's a league table, below. Points are awarded thus:
  1. One point for each question thread that the #CILIP2012 candidate responds in.
  2. One bonus point for each question thread where the #CILIP2012 candidate has responded multiple times (as it's more of a debate then).

Here's the league table, as of 17:00 on Wednesday 30th November when voting closed for the 2012 election:

1. Keith Wilson ...... 19 points
2. Liz McGettigan ... 17 points
2. Sue Westcott ..... 17 points
4. Mike Hosking ..... 15 points
5. Sue Cook ...........12 points
6. Maria Cotera ...... 10 points



Question threads: 15

Question threads where all six candidates have responded: 5, namely:
  1. How do you take your gin?
  2. A suggested change to the way trustees are selected.
  3. How will candidates ensure that CILIP remains solvent?
  4. If elected, how will you use social media to help librarians?
  5. Proudest achievement.

Question threads where the least number of candidates (in both cases, 3 out of the 6) replied:
  1. What should a public library do or offer?
  2. e-books in libraries

Candidates who have responded in all question threads: 1, namely:
  1. Keith Wilson
