The current board has never, as far as I know, had an official
board meeting, and the bylaws call for the board to do that
every year (which seems to mean that each board would typically
meet once -- right around the end of that board's tenure).
The previous procedure for choosing a new board was to have an
election with paper ballots in a ballot box. Last year this
happened on a Tuesday but it wasn't a consensus agenda item; it
was pursuant to a resolution of the board at a board meeting. :-)
As Rachel says, Kelly is working on getting an official membership
list by excluding people who aren't in good standing because
they've stopped paying dues. I think this is based on the
intuition that members should have a reliable way to find out
whether they're eligible to vote before they vote. (This isn't
a joke, since last year the board explicitly decided not to
measures of any kind to prevent vote fraud.)
