As an advocate or activist there usually comes a time when you need to set up a conference call. There are also times when you may just need to make a call that can be recorded easily. Web-based conference calling can usually handle your need, whatever it may be in regards to having multiple callers, the ability to record, etc etc.
There are several free conference calling sites around, however I have found http://www.freeconferencing.com/ to be very easy to use, and it allows callers and host to call using Skype, enough time and callers per call. The host of a call through freeconferencing.com also has the ability to record the conference calls, as well as using the host web controls to manage the call online in real time.
This is from the website:
