Messaging and voice chat for on line meetings
My board would like at minimum a secure chat feature that would keep a record of the meeting. Similar to Google Hangouts chat feature. They want to be able to schedule an on line meeting and keep it within the Wild Apricot environment. Meetings for members, department heads, team leaders etc. would be great. The forum feature is not what they wish for. If it could include voice chat, that would be awesome but not necessary.

A chat gadget (or something similar) would be great for my membership sites personally because both sites are targeted toward groups that like to chat in real time and be able to communicate with each other in real time. Many of my business customers like to mastermind with others immediately and being in highly competitive business environments, need answers faster than the forums may deliver them.
Great suggestions. Todd could you elaborate on how you think your users would use this? Are they already using hipchat or slack?

We'd love to see HipChat integration through their API.
Good suggestion, but it would be hard for us to develop custom chat or voice chat software. But we may integrate with some existing ones in future.
