The EAC Board of Advisors Virtual Meeting Room was established to enable the Board of Advisors to conduct business in an efficient manner in a public forum, including being able to review and discuss draft documents, when it is not feasible for an in-person board meeting. The Board of Advisors did not take any votes or propose any resolutions during the 5-day forum of April 21–25, 2008. Members posted comments about the eight draft chapters of the Election Management Guidelines
