Ongoing loosely organized meeting hosting


I help host an ongoing meeting of a loosely managed organization. There is an official paid account we are supposed to use and subsequent centralized computer and email for that organizational entity. Normally "someone" will logon to that account, fire up a meeting and then everyone can join in as usual. That account rotates through various individuals occasionally. This isn't usually a problem. The problem occurs when someone *cough* either doesn't have access to that computer or simply spaces out and forgets they are supposed to start up our meeting. Is there a way to have a meeting that has a fixed meeting ID but has a small number of people that can initiate the meeting instead of always forcing the meeting to be hosted by the one and only official account?


The main problem is we don't want the meeting ID to change but we want multiple logins to be able to initialize that meeting, kind of a rotating cadre of hosts for a specific meeting ID. Unfortunately we'll need to be able to invite in and also boot individual logins from being able to initialize said meeting.


I'm not sure how we could do this, or if it's even possible. Thanks!
