Thank you for the feedback. I have done some research specific to my state, but was curious if others have run into the same issue and how they've worked around it.

As Kinerty suggested sounds like a question for a lawyer. That said those sunshine/Open Record laws usually cover things concerning them working behind closed doors in private. Anything they would be posting could be 100% public. There is the private message system but you can disable their ability to send and receive them.
Ask them if they have Facebook accounts and how they handle posting on community pages there.
I've created a separate group and set permissions so that they can only create topics, but not reply or private message. This restricts their ability to collaborate anything (short of starting a new topic for the sole purpose of responding to another topic). It's the best I've been able to come up with for now.

You mean Open Meetings Acts - decisions must be made in public. But two legislators can talk to each other in private. How would being BB members affect this? I don't see a problem, unless they decide to do all their business with PMs, which they could do with email anyway.
Yes, same thing. But from what I have read (and from what I have been told by officials), is that if a quorum were met (in our case 3 people), it would require a public notice be sent out in advance and minutes of the meeting to be recorded and then made available to anyone. They, of course, could communicate as an individual - but even that becomes tricky with new "walking" laws.
Thanks again for the feedback.
