Recording attendance for those attending remotely

Recommended Posts

  • How should minutes properly record members who attend meetings remotely.  They aren't "present" but they fully participate.  Should we have two lines for attendance, those who attend in person and those who attend remotely.

If the rules in RONR apply, members who are not physically present cannot participate at all.

So you'll have to look to the section of your own bylaws that authorize "remote attendance" and follow those rules.

Assuming that your bylaws allow remote (absentee) participation, I will first point out that RONR does not require that the presence or absence of members be noted in the minutes unless you have a rule or custom providing for it.  Assuming there is such a rule or custom, they can all just be recorded as "present" or they can be classified separately as "present in person" or "by phone".  The method of recording attendance is entirely up to your organization to determine.
