Thanks everyone for your responses.  Deborah, was this something on which
your chapter voted or did you make an executive decision?  Carol made a good
point that, if there are many seniors in the chapter who are not accustomed
to using computers and the internet, then it is probably worth continuing
the practice.  On the other hand, if there are just a couple of members who
are having issues, then they need to resolve the problem themselves or find
another means of reading them.  Given that we are supposed to be a
democratic organization, I'm thinking that it's something that should be
discussed and a vote had.

Rob,
For some time now, we in the Cincinnati chapter have distributed minutes via
email, and then approved them at the meetings.
For those few who do not use computers, others are sharing with them.
Hope this helps.
Deborah (president of Cincinnati chapter)

RobbYThis us Karen I was secretary for years for our chapter I do believe it
is necessary to read the minutes you forget not everyone has a computer and
they still deserve just as much information as the next person I do believe
minutes need to be very thorough this to me is just all about keeping good
recordsWhen I did minutes we had an introduction with a prayer then old
business new business telephone report entertainment report as well  just an
example for u Wanda Sloan has problems with a computer as I type so
individuals like her would never hear the minutes unless you read them aloud
at the meeting Thank you,Karen Noles

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!

 

Thanks,

Robby
