Guidance for the Conduct of RCR Meetings
(per Sarah Starck)
The committee chair sets the agenda and times for each item, as well as  facilitating the meeting.  Before the meeting begins, a note taker (secretary) is identified and attendees are noted.  The meeting is conducted so that one person speaks at a time.  The chair keeps meeting points on topic and within the times set.
The next meeting's agenda points and ongoing discussions are noted for follow-up.
After every meeting recommendations, proposals, and/or reports are written by the committee chair or someone delegated to do so. The written notes are submitted to the Station Manager, who can report to BOD if deemed appropriate.
Reports are written in the format below, using all that apply, without being limited to this list:
