The Bylaws state:


A Member may vote either in person or by proxy executed in writing,
including through remote communication, by the Member or his or her duly
authorized attorney-in-fact. 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.


The Secretary has not exhaustively defined what is acceptable as "proxy
executed in writing, including through remote communication" (other than
voting via memberbot), but I would venture that a cryptographically
signed email from the address you used to send this message, to your
chosen proxy, cc'ing the Secretary, might be acceptable. I note that
X.509 certificates are rather straightforward to obtain from the likes
of StartCom, and that this message is signed with such a certificate.
Visit http://www.startssl.com/ for details.

I would be happy to act as a proxy for anyone who will be unable to
attend tomorrow's meeting.
