Length of meetings

Good morning all;

There's been some noise about how long the meetings go, and I want to check in with you. Yesterday's meeting was unusual in that we had new people attending, and some of us left early to catch the superbowl. Usually meetings run anywhere from three to three and a half hours. Originally we were meeting once a month and changed it to once every two weeks because of all the good stuff people brought that they had to read.

How about you: are the meetings too long, do you want to limit the amount of time, or limit the page/word count for material that people bring with them?

I've been using the volume of what people have to read to judge how long the meeting runs and how much time we spend discussing that person's work. It's very much an ad hoc consideration.

And I want to apologize if you feel left out or didn't get your fair share yesterday... So there.

If you respond to this email it'll go to my personal email so no one will know, unless you give me 48.6 cents.
