ABPSC — Clarify meaning of 'attendance' to include online presence

  • Key: ABPSC-29
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Jason Smith)
  • Summary:

    The P&P uses two terms to discuss the presence of a representative at a meeting (of any sort): 'attend' (present tense) and 'in person' (past tense). The meaning is clear from context that it is an individual who has engaged in a meeting.

    Given that many (most?) of our meetings now incorporate a dial-in line or online screen presentation tool of some sort, it is important for us to reflect this shift.

    Suggestion to add language specifying that online engagement (with bidirectional communication capability, voice, typed, or both) counts for purposes of attendance, including 'in person', and that attendance records should include anyone calling in to a meeting.

    Section 3.3 would be a good place to add this, as it currently does not exist.
