I would propose to let every project/region decide that by themselves. <snip /> 
Enforcing a re-election every year might not make sense.

=== +1 to local teams deciding for themselves.  Elections too frequently becomes 
pointless as people get into the habit of just reaffirming the same person which 
starts out being great but makes it difficult for them to step down later.  
However, it might be the best approach in some cultures/societies.

This is indeed one of my greatest concerns. English is somehow crucial to 
communicate with the project, but I see that many people are not fluent in 
English, but do a great job, so I don't want to exclude them.

My gut feeling says me that we should have at least one or two contacts speaking 
English as marketing contact per region. If some others join who don't speak 
English that good, this should be no problem.

=== +1 it's always good to have a back-up especially if they have different 
points-of-view to minimise the filtering effect but friendly enough to work 
together well.  

However, a region without any official contact capable of speaking English 
doesn't feel too good for me...

=== +1 annoyingly i have to agree even tho i feel i should argue lol

I guess we'll find out how it works when we started the process. :)

=== err No, or "possibly not", depending on what Florian means by "the 
process".  I agree with Charles that a good next step is to agree what we want 
from the roles and perhaps choose an appropriate "job-title".
