Liz, please review sections 4.2 and 5.1 of the BC Charter. The Officers
confirm all appointments to committees, and have power to remove them (4.2).
The election provision (5.1) is only for GNSO Councilors. Historically, the
BC has held advisory elections for the NomComm, and the current Officers
have continued that tradition.

I am confused about the term "advisory election" and that the officers would
"decide who to appoint to the second NomCom slot."
Surely the election result would tell us who the members would like to
appoint to the second Nominating Committee seat?
Perhaps you could clarify?
