IRC is not a place; it is a communications protocol with both clients and
servers  that can communicate using it.

If the suggestion is to open board meetings to the chaotic nonsense that is
EFnet or Undernet, or any of the other established global IRC networks, then
I wholeheartedly concur.

But...  running a single, non-connected IRC server for the purposes of a
single organization's communication with interested parties is known science
and occurs all the time, without the added baggage of connecting to any of
the popular existing networks.
