Attending Meetings/Voting by Conference Call


Guest Susan L

Recommended Posts

Our by-laws have not been updated in a very long time. In today's day and age, is it appropriate to allow board members who are traveling to "attend" meetings via conference call and have their votes count as well, or do they need to be physically present at the meeting? Also, could a board member "vote by proxy" on a particualr issue if they will be traveling at the time of the meeting? Thanks so much.

I have seen e-conference and teleconferencing for Board meetings. I would question the proxy use for Board meetings - if someone cannot attend Board meetings in person or by e-conferencing or teleconferencing then the person should not really accept election. A truly empty seat cannot enter into debate and provide ideas.
