1 In 2020, there were two separate calls for new members. Applicants who replied to both are counted only once.

2 The geographical distribution sometimes equals more than the number of applicants, due to some applicants having dual residency or dual citizenship.

3 The Committee had seven active members total for the 2020—2021 term. One member stepped down midyear, and we did a second call for members to fill the empty seat, so the statistics show eight people for this year.
