I can't speak for Steve, but I'd begin with a committee composed of members willing to serve and have their names made public. The committee would have the responsibility of delivering a written report and recommendation to the BoD for action, that would be included within the minutes.

As it is now, we aren't getting recordings or minutes from committee meetings. I see it as a first step in the right direction.

That is the best a way to make this board workable

What would the issues be? The Board makes the final call, the committees do research, brainstorming and submit their ideas. Interested members could be on the committees rather than just listening.

Nope. The point of the committee is to be able to spend the required amount of time on a single subject and let all the dumb stuff be aired out and filtered before it comes to the board in an organized thought out manner via a written report. If the Board has questions about the report they go back to the committee, it gets hashed out and regurgitated some more until it's resolved to the boards satisfaction. All reports will be public and all suggestions would be public as well as the committees members. Complete transparency minus the awkward, embarrassing drama. This is of course just my opinion.

One other thing, I think all committee reports should have a short summary at the end that can be read during the meeting so when the BOD refers to a document in an MP3 recording the summery can be read and at least the membership knows what is being discussed and or voted on.

What about stating what time on the MP3 each point is discussed? Would certainly save time for those interested in certain issues.

I was thinking about this last night. A list of start times and topics would be helpful. I was also thinking maybe bookmarks or chapters in the recording would be useful, but I'm not sure if MP3 has that capabillity. Years ago when I was burning concert recordings to CD, there was a tool that allowed me to setup bookmarks in an MP3 and then cut it to each of those as a track. Maybe dividing up the big MP3 into smaller ones would work? If some one has the time and wants to do it, it would be cool to burn that to an ISO image playable as a CD. It could be mounted (MagicDisc on Windows) and played either in its entirety or for a specific track. I know I'm a geek and that seems like a lot of work, and may not be doable, but if some one was going to listen to it to make note of topic start/stop times, the act of cutting and/or burning takes only a little bit of extra time with the right software.

Before I start asking questions, does anyone know where a copy of the rules for the TOY can be found on the KCBS site?

I just don't want to taste shoe leather again by inserting my foot in my mouth.
