Re: [council] Point for Discussion
I agree that we should reform the bylaws to permit proxy voting, and it sounds like this initiative would have to come from the Board, so perhaps we should have a conversation with the Board on this issue.

As far as I remember passing on a proxy during a meeting was quitecommon back in the days where we still had this possibility. Given that we are all volunteers, having a regular day job, there is not always time to attend every meeting, hence a simple proxy option is certainly desirable. At least from my recollection there was nomisuse of that practice. tom Am 12.07.2007 schrieb Ross Rader:Mike Rodenbaugh wrote:I'm not sure where that specific practice came from, it was just the way we did it :)Ross, why the limitation that proxy must be passed 'prior to the start of the meeting'? I have seen several times where a Councilor was at a meeting but needed to leave before it ended, and sought at that point to give a proxy (which I believe we have accepted that proxy vote on at least a couple occasions).Glen might be able to provide better insight though. -- Regards, Ross Rader Director, Retail Services Tucows Inc. http://www.domaindirect.com t. 416.538.5492Gruss, tom(__) (OO)_____ (oo) /|\ A cow is not entirely full of| |--/ | * milk some of it is hamburger!w w w w
