    <div class="moz-cite-prefix">Hi Bill, hi all, <br>
      <br>
      thanks a lot for drafting this. We definitely need to update the
      bylaws to reflect the new monthly meeting schedule. <br>
      <br>
      But while I can see that it may seem tempting to enforce hard
      rules of attendance for board members, I don't feel that we really
      need it. <br>
      <br>
      IMHO, lack of attendance has not been a major issue the last 2
      years and I hope it will not be an issue in the future. So to some
      degree it feels like over-engineering. <br>
      Just for last year, here is our records of attendance, which I
      would say is a pretty well functioning board: <br>
      <a
href="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wpaOCBP-qrnde0sLiglDMJOUCtse6oB-zf3ONCkWgZk/edit#gid=6">https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wpaOCBP-qrnde0sLiglDMJOUCtse6oB-zf3ONCkWgZk/edit#gid=6</a><br>
      <br>
      Outright removal would indeed be irresponsible, because a board
      member might have had very good reasons (incl. illness or working
      on activities for our own OWASP organisation) for not attending. <br>
      <br>
      I can sense that you might want to cause a vote of confidence. <br>
      But I am not sure we really need to define such a process step,
      but depending on my fellow board members, I would ok with that. <br>
      <br>
      As for attendance ratios: personally, I feel that expulsion of an
      elected board member from the board through a non-confidence vote
      is still a pretty heavy step, therefore 8/12 = 66% (instead of
      75%) should be sufficient as minimum requirement before such a
      vote can be cast. <br>
      <br>
      Overall, I hope we can continue to positively motivate people to
      attend the board meeting, instead of threatening with a stick. <br>
      <br>
      Your thoughts? <br>
      <br>
      Best regards, Tobias<br>

            and Apr, then obviously there is no way to attend 75% for
            the entire year, the best you could hope for is (8/12 = 66%)

            reason for having a vote of confidence instead of outright

              <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:12.0pt">1) I
                think we need to find a way to remove the language about
                meetings lasting 4-6 hours.  This was fine when the
                meetings were quarterly, but when we switched to monthly
                the only lasted about an hour.  So, if we can eliminate
                the meeting duration from the text, I think that would
                be ideal.<o:p></o:p></p>
            </div>
            <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:12.0pt">2)
              Something that I've always wondered is what happens when a
              Board member does not attend 75% of the meetings?  It says
              that it's mandatory to attend, but what are the
              ramifications?  Forfeiture of their Board position and
              appointment of a new Director for the duration of their
              seat?  It may not have ever been a problem, but I
              witnessed it happen in our local ISSA chapter and it was
              incredibly frustrating to have a President in absencia and
              our VP basically had to step up and take on his
              responsibilities and we were short a Board member the
