Sorry, replace "voters" with "participants" in the proposal. So:

******

RESOLVED that the following paragraph be added to Section 3.1 of the JSF
Bylaws:

Subject to Board of Directors approval and compliance with applicable law,
remote communication may include online text conferencing, provided that
the conferencing system verifies the identity of participants to the
satisfaction of the Secretary.
