Robbie,I understand what you are saying in regards to being time efficient and asking members to be responsible for reading the minutes prior to the meeting, but also it is important that all members  have access to the minutes if you do not want to read them at the meeting.  Our world is advancing rapidly  in the area of technology and the younger generation has adapted to this quickly and easily, whereas, it is important to look at the demographics of each chapter individually to determine the population of each specific chapter and adapt to the population of that chapter.  If this means that a chapter has a large population of seniors who do not have access to the internet for whatever reason, then by all means, taking a few extra minutes to read the minutes during the meeting, will not be that difficult. We need to be inclusive of all and be careful not to lose members simply because they are not linked via social media, Thank you for posting this relevant topic to the list serve.

 Hello all:


I am now the Secretary for the NFB of the Greater Miami Chapter in Dayton.
I am curious to know if Secretaries of chapters around the state are reading
their minutes at each meeting.  I personally feel like this is an
unnecessary practice since we send the minutes out via email and I maintain
that it is the responsibility of each member to read the minutes themselves.
Plus, I'd like to use our time more effectively.  I write pretty detailed
minutes.  While I do not write out everything that is said, I do provide
enough information so that someone who was unable to attend can get a very
good idea of what was discussed at the meeting.  That being said, however, I
do understand that there are some people who may not have access to email.
My thought was to put this as a question before our chapter but I was asked
to do some research on it first.  So, please let me know what you think!
