I disagree.  As the Secretary for the SSTC & WSSTC, I'm often tracking at least one person on LOA.  A possible manual approach could be to remove the "Voting Member" flag from members on LOA.  Aside from this, I can't see any reason you wouldn't always have the "Voting Member" flag set for someone in the "Member" role.

It would be helpful to have a more automated process to provide an alert when the maximum LOA duration has been reached, but not essential (given the above manual solution).
