There were no absentees.

As noted in the Intersect Bylaws, for a board meeting to be a quorum, at least the greater of one-third (1/3) of the then-serving Directors or two (2) Directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at any meeting of the Board of Directors. If less than a majority of the Directors are present at said meeting, a Director present may adjourn the meeting from time to time without further notice.

Was a quorum established? Yes.
