[Board] Potential inactive members - action requested

It is our policy  that members who have not voted in the
past two elections are eligible for removal as "inactive". This is the first
time we are finally able to act on this policy, due to skipped elections and
The past two elections were the 2013 Board vote and the 2012 Board vote.
(The 2013 Charter vote was not not held.) These members did not vote in
those two elections are are therefore candidates for removal:
Hardeep S. Rai
Jorge Gustavo Rocha
Luis W. Sevilla
Rafael Medeiros Sperb
Schuyler D. Erle
Note that removal due to inactivity should not be considered a "hostile" act
nor should I reflect poorly on the individual removed. Rather, this process
is simply intended to keep the set of charter members robust and current. We
recognize that people's careers and interests change over time.
As this is the first time we're taking this action, and as I'm no longer
technically on the board, I'm going to ask for the board's recommendation on
how to proceed. Options are:
(1) do nothing keep these members on the active list
(2) send them emails asking them if they want to be removed or if they want
to stay on (response required within 7 days, else default removal)
(3) remove them, and send a mail indicating they have been removed due to
(4) remove them, without attempt at notification
(5) do nothing for now board to discuss matter at future meeting
Because it is possible these people were missed for administrative reasons
(incorrect email addresses, incorrect vote tabulations) I suggest option 2.
The board with to deal with this informally by email right now, or wait and
take a formal vote at the next meeting.
I serve at the pleasure of the Board, and am happy to act on the above as
however the Board in their collective wisdom sees fit to direct me.
