I suspect you have mailed the wrong place. Instant Messaging Freedom, Inc.'s
current bylaws include no such section or text. All IMF board meetings happen
in a publicly viewable but moderated (i.e. only board members may speak) XMPP
Multi-User Chat (MUC). The MUC is logged, and this log is posted on IMF's
website (http://imfreedom.org/) as a transcript. When the secretary is able to
provide minutes of the meeting, those minutes are also posted on IMF's website.
