DRAFT This is a draft proposal which has not yet been voted on by the committee.
Proposed by Aaron Starr.
- Problem: Several years ago our bylaws were updated to allow meetings via teleconference or videoconference for boards and committees of nine or fewer. The thinking at the time was that it may be too difficult to conduct such meetings with larger groups while preserving the rights of the participants.
- Solution: We are not sure that this is going to work. We want to allow meetings of a larger size to use videoconference technology, but we need to assure ourselves that the technology can accommodate the needs of the organization and meet certain specifications, such as requiring that participating members are able to see and hear each other.
- Benefits: Potentially allows for more cost-effective meetings while preserving the rights of participants and observers.
