Non-attendance at meetings

It is becoming difficult to schedule meetings. Some board members do not respond to the doodle after repeated requests and efforts by the secretary to contact them are not working as well as not being an effective use of time.

Duties of board members we agreed on at F2F include attending meetings.

Wikimedia Foundation Board has expectation of participating in at least two-thirds of online meetings in any year.

Counting doodle for upcoming meeting, 3/7 board members are at or below that attendance point.

Circulars

Circular rules state

The proposed resolution is accepted as soon as at least 50% of board members have agreed by making a clear statement to that effect on the board mailing list.

We are unable to get sufficient votes to accept or reject a circular in a timely manner and those not voting are not raising any questions or commenting on the circulars. One of the board duties agreed on is responding to circulars.

Proposed is

1. Minuting who did not respond in the next meeting's minutes.

This is a form of "automatic feedback" of the type encouraged by Gunner. It would allow members to see if board members are regularly failing in their duty to vote yes/no/abstain.

2. Ending voting after one week, or after two weeks if a board member requests an extension

WMF board has a one-week voting period, extended one week if needed.

This would prevent circulars from being blocked by non-responsive board members

Management Team

Not clear if we had decided to officially disband the MT or not.

Close of 2014 business year

Report on 2014 business year and open issues.

Decision requested on cutting off 2014 expense reimbursements on May 31, 2015.
