I request that we vote the "Meetings by Teleconference" as a separate item from the overall proposed changes.
My past experience on other "Boards" gives me significant concerns on this proposal.
1. Regardless of the notice given, people travel and are unavailable for the calls at the times scheduled. Other Boards address this issue by having assigned alternates who can vote for the primary person. In our case we have no alternates to vote for us. Other Boards also set a higher level of approval votes for teleconference votes. For example 50% Yes votes of all eligible members regardless of how many members are on the call is used by some organizations.
2. We already have two methods/venues for voting. We vote at Plenary sessions. We vote by email ballot including ballots of short duration. Therefore I do not see the reason for another method particularly without addressing the concerns in point number 1.
Therefore I would currently oppose this P&P change.
