I've served on some committees over the years. Usually the chair will call individuals to talk about ideas and then start an email thread and we do reply all so that we can share ideas without having to be available for calls at specific times. I think sometimes a conference call would be a good idea.
Now something like rules committee is a different thing as they have an annual meting to discuss changes. However the committee can still meet by phone, email, etc during the year to start accumulating content for the next rules meeting. And of course the rules meeting is just a recommendation for the BOD to consider.
