Why would an appointed member ever have to seek election? The point of
appointed members is to get people with specific skills the board
requires, the point of election is to get people that can represent
the community. They are distinct goals, and you shouldn't try and mix
them. (Of course, if a member of the community has the required skills
and can fulfil both roles, that's great.)
