This sounds weird. Don't have access to it. :-S. A Board should be
able to oversee the activities of the "company". And of course I
understand that there may be tasks within the board, where is stated
who oversees what, and is responsible for that. But as the committees
give advice to the Board at this moment only, and do formally (as far
as i know) not *make* the decision (the Board still has to accept the
resolution, right?) I would expect that at least some Boardmembers
(those who are responsible for that area) have access to those wiki's.
Is there maybe some list of responsibilities of the boardmembers, on
what basis it may appear more logical that some boardmembers (hearing
the sound of her writing, angela appears not to have access to some?)
do or don't have access to certain sources of information, relevant to
their functioning as boardmember? Is there further a list of private
channels and wiki's available with globally the access? (for example
certain Board members and committeemembers) I can understand of course
that certain conversations and/or information should be out-of-public,
but I wonder if the information that there is certain non-public
information should be classified as well.

Greetings, Lodewijk Gelauff
