Interesting, I also got this comment from someone else.

This is one reason I didn't look into such stats. I also don't like the
idea of focusing just on Lauren here: it would also makes sense to look
at past employers / circles of interest of each elected person in that
case. This can easily become a slippery slope.

"The Secretary and the Executive Director, acting together, may, or the
Board of Directors may direct the Secretary and Executive Director to,
terminate an Individual Member as follows: (i) for violation of the
Individual Member Agreement if the violation is not cured within the
period provided in the Individual Member Agreement, (ii) for violation
of the Community Code of Conduct, or (iii) failure to vote in at least
50% of the votes for Individual Members within the prior twenty-four
months unless the person does not respond within thirty (30) days of
notice of such termination that the person wishes to continue to be an
Individual Member."

So the relevant part here is "failure to vote in at least 50% of the
votes for Individual Members within the prior twenty-four months".
