Agreed. Also, the election has to be held after 6 months, and it seems
only fair to have the new council in place for the summit.

As the current council is in charge of deciding sponsorships, we'll
apply some intelligence in deciding if nominees get sponsorship if

Given the council is effectively the community choosing the people to
represent it, the people chosen are almost certainly going to be
existing well-known members of the community with a track record of
helping, facilitating and being active.

One'd imagine that such people should be sponsored either way!
