Prefacing answers to questions from the floor with a repetition of the question is an excellent strategy, since the original questioner is not miked. Some speakers, even at the microphone, are very soft-spoken, I've noticed.
If these meetings are recorded, providing access to the sound portion (at least) on the MSI website, or even MDS, would be a boon. Even more useful would be a written summary, or even transcript, of the meeting's pertinent points.
Posting this information on a public site like MDS would help spread the word of MSI's actions, keep the community in the loop, and encourage increased participation in the process of recovering and retaining our 2A rights. As it is now, no one outside the immediate circle knows what has been presented, or what MSI intends to do going forward.
Of course, if there's proprietary content, that could easily be left out of a transcript.
I'm told that there exists programs that turn speech into written words; that would be helpful to anyone preparing a transcript, thou a bit of editing would doubtless be necessary.
. . . just a few thoughts from someone unable to attend the meetings.
Speaking as regular ol' Art3, I like the idea of recording the meetings and having them available to members. I cannot speak on behalf of MSI on that. There may be reasons why that shouldn't happen (beyond the technical challenges of it being able to happen). Honestly, I just don't know.The meetings are not recorded
ETA: I was just informed that meetings will not be recorded, for a variety of reasons (privacy of members in part), such as not wanting the D-manding Moms from accessing, altering, and using it for their nefarious purposes. So...that's that. Show up if you can, or Zoom (and keep the Zoom link private).
