Introduction

The Board of Directors of SoylentNews PBC (the "Corporation") has general responsibility for managing the business of the Corporation. The Board derives its powers from the Bylaws of the Corporation, Article III ("Directors"), Section 1 ("Powers"):

"The business of the Corporation shall be managed by or under the direction of a Board of Directors who may exercise all the powers of the Corporation except as otherwise provided by law, by the Certificate of Incorporation, or by these Bylaws."

The Board elects Officers (President, Treasurer, Secretary, etc.), and makes other decisions, usually focusing on issues that may have financial or legal consequences for the Corporation, (e.g., opening bank accounts, issuing shares of stock, etc.).

Board Meetings

The Board holds meetings, usually on SoylentNews's IRC #staff channel (http://chat.soylentnews.org/). Logs of these meetings are linked below.

All users and members of the public are invited to attend Board Meetings. However, to maintain order, and depending on attendance at any given meeting, not all attendees may be given .voice.
