Proposal #1a: Allow Electronic Meetings for Large Committees or Boards

DRAFT This is a draft proposal which has not yet been voted on by the committee.

Proposed by Chuck Moulton.

  • Problem: Travel, lodging, and venue fees for meetings are costly.
  • Solution: Meet electronically at the discretion of the committee.
  • Benefits: Saves money.

  • removed - red, strikethrough
  • added - blue, underline, italic


  1. I Strongly support this change as well, provided there are at least once a year face to face meetings.

  2. I should add that I meant the LNC itself should actually hold a once annual in person meeting.

  3. This was a recent change pushed by the group that was ejected in 2012, as a path to controlling the larger committees. It should be ended. However, the technical means should not be specified in so much detail.
