In light of the travel restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic a change was proposed to the code of regulations permitting electronic attendance at meetings for members of the national Board. It was voted upon according to the regulations, and it passed. The code now reads:
Section 4.14. Attendance Through Electronic Communication Platforms. Meetings of the Board of Directors may be held through electronic communication platforms if all persons so participating can hear each other or contemporaneously communicate with each other. Such participation shall constitute presence at such meeting. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at least two meetings per year of the Board of Directors must be scheduled as in-person meetings.
4.14.1. In-Person Meetings. In the event that an in-person meeting is impractical due to natural disaster, pandemic, or financial restraints, the Board of Directors may vote to convert an in-person meeting to an electronic meeting.
