I believe Karl has a point here.
Can Kavi be used for people to register prior and
during a meeting? This may remove bookkeeping errors and interruptions
during the meeting.
Okay, I promise not to extend further suggestions
as to promoting a collaborative meeting environment.

Another thought - TC members who know that they
will be late to a meeting should notify the Chair ahead of time, and could then
be included in the attendance records. This is also a common courtesy.
This of course assumes you have a quorum without that person at the beginning of
the meeting. Otherwise, as pointed out earlier, you will not be able to

Yes, but expecting the business reality that people do
get delayed to go away is unrealistic. Causing two occurrences such a delay to
result in a membership warning is a bit harsh. I would support inserting the
sentence allowing the chair to extend a courtesy to members upon such a delay.
This allows the chair to manage situations such as someone always arriving
late without overly punishing people because a previous meeting ran late.
Perhaps the TC minutes should reflect such late arrivers as an additional
means of encouraging punctuality.
In addition, I suspect many TCs will operate in such a manner anyway
and it would be better to have the rules governing TC operations explicitly
provide for such behavior.
