The board has discussed opening meetings to the public, but doing so would create additional hurdles that would ultimately result in less access on a regular basis to members. This is due to every individual present, not just directors, being required to provide their approval to be broadcast for each meeting. It would also require that each individual provide releases related to their likeness and permission to use for broadcast purposes. Since non-approval to be broadcast could be provided by attendees at any point up to the meeting start, any denials would result in last minute cancellations of meeting broadcasts. This seemed problematic if we wanted to keep our target audience informed on a regular basis.

Agenda and Schedule

Meeting agenda items will include:

  • Information services infrastructure overview
  • Instructional fees for events
  • Discussing the recent open letter to the board about the RRG, and an upcoming informational webinar and magazine article on the RRG/USHPA
