I think this is a point well made.  Would not the existing board want to 
extend their term to enable them to continue without the hassle of the 
election coming up to distract them from achieving more of their objectives?

I like the idea of extending to 12 months.

I also wonder whether, in the case of an initiative that has only gotten 
traction toward the end of a term, but not completion, whether there is not 
already the implied expectation or possibility that those involved would 
continue to be available regardless of their no longer holding an elected 
post, to see the work to completion? (provided, I suppose, that this does not 
conflict with the newly elected peoples plans and limit those continued 
activities to an agreed scope).  Such a provision may seem to complicate 
things a little, but, it would at least provide a way to get completion of 
objectives regardless of election schedule vs progress, or until some type of 
agreed hand-off can happen?

Great idea.

If there's enough consensus (and no objections) why not extend the term
with this current board? I'm assuming there are current
initiatives/goals that could benefit from giving the current team the
additional 6 months to see things through.
