I was approached 30th of october. I informed the board the following
day, as it seemed to me mandatorily that they be informed as soon as
possible, given the potential risks of conflict of interest.
I was in favor of asking him to resign at that point, but some perceived
unfair to have him resign with lack of certainty over visa obtention.

Erik was immediately removed from the ED evaluation committee by its
chair (Jan-Bart) after I informed the board. Erik has not yet been
officially replaced on this committee.
I asked Erik to recuse himself on some resolutions, such as the
Executive Director one.
Erik went on being chair of the treasurer search committee until his
resignation from the board. Soon before his resignation, he (not the
committee) submitted a recommandation with regards to the search to the
entire board. Since then, the treasurer search committee is made of only
two people, with the support of Mona. I have made a follow up on the new
candidates just before Christmas. Otherwise, issue is pending.
