Welcome Everyone!
« on: June 08, 2019, 01:15:14 PM »
Welcome to the new "Ask the Governing Committee" Section!  We're trying to make contacting & getting feedback to the Governing Committee easier.  We'd love to hear your thoughts, questions, & comments!  If you have something specific to one of the Subcommittees, please post those on the Child Boards for the specific Subcommittee.  If you have questions for the AHA members meeting at Homebrew Con in Providence, you can list them here, too!

Can GC meeting minutes be posted here or on the member’s only portion of the website so the membership gets an idea what topics are discussed, decisions made, and planning scheduled by those that have been elected?

Yes, the minutes from out face to face meeting in Providence will be posted.  I think you'll find them pretty boring, but they will be posted.

Thank you. I’d actually like to see GC meeting minutes for every meeting posted as they occur.

Characterizing the record of the member’s representatives annual meeting as ‘boring’ is disheartening to me.  I’ve been to a bazillion staff meetings and though I would not consider them exciting events, I would hope that they were worth gathering and the exchange of information valuable enough to pass along.  Though you may consider them ‘boring’, the meeting minutes may provide some insight for those of us less informed.  They may not.  Put it in a poll and let the members decide.

As I recall, we discussed posting the minutes of every meeting, but the by laws only call for posting minutes from our yearly meeting.  Hopefully someone will let me know if that's correct.

From my work in other associations, I would say if AHA states in its bylaws that the Secretary will "take and distribute minutes," then that's what should happen. I also agree that these minutes may be more interesting to the rest of us than GC members may realize.
