Participants need a computer with high-speed internet access and speakers  to participate.

I recommend that we operate under the “Special Rules of Order for Electronic Meetings” of the NAP Board, with the following modifications:

1.      All attendees are full “members” for the meeting with voice and vote, and are encouraged to participate

2.      Sections 9.2.03 B and 9.2.07 of the rules are modified to allow those who wish to do so to use the “Everyone Chat” window as their primary means of communication (when they have been appropriately recognized by the chair or are otherwise entitled by the rules to speak) rather than employing the use of a microphone.

That way, having a working microphone is not absolutely necessary. If participants with to use them, however, they are strongly encouraged to check them out by running the “audio setup wizard” which is an option when they click on the word “Meeting” at the top left of the screen in the meeting room.

Josh Martin, PRP, has agreed to chair a “mock” meeting as the content of the gathering – which will be a monthly business meeting of the East Tahiti Unit of NAP. The meeting agenda is below. Note that several of us have “reports” to make (which are ours to make up). The Special Committee on Technology will be recommending the purchase of a computer and projector (which should give a meeting room full of parliamentarians plenty to work with!). Note that I am suggesting we end the meeting with informal consideration of the Special Rules of Order – simply as a way to let participants reflect on how it went, and what they might want to do differently or improve.
