I've always tried to distinguish between the "TEI Conference" and
the business meeting and like the term "community meeting". Our
website and discussions often refer to the conference as the
'members meeting', which I'd like to discourage. While I believe
what we're required to have is an 'Annual General Meeting' (or
AGM) open at very least to the members, I believe it has always
been open to everyone regardless of whether they are members or
not. Anything that we can do to encourage participation, both in
the TEI Conference and TEI Community Meeting (see, it is catching
on already!), is a good thing.
