I'd like to second that. The EFA have had a similar clause for many
years, and although I have been to no meetings (at least lately) they
seem to be happy to keep it.
(: With a nod to the NSW rail authorities, one could argue that this
is simply changing the definition of 'participation'. But, that's no
reason not to do it. :)
It might be worth checking in at the EFA to see whether they actually
have many teleconf meetings. I expect they do, and they may well
keep transcripts or minutes. If so, they might be a source of
strategy and tactics for making such meetings effective.
