A number of items strike me as suspicious about this announcement. Especially considering HSO's opposition to holding these meetings at all. 1.) Short (2 Weeks) notice 2.) The inconvenient time of day 3.) the obnoxious rules about when and how to sign up to speak. Why is HSO afraid of the very members her organization should be serving? Hypocrasy at work by Janet Meyer and her staff.
