Re: Guild Meeting on Zoom, 2/22 (etc.)

   I understand that there need to be MIT-specific officers to maintain 
our MIT connection. Otherwise, why have two separate meetings, when there 
is almost complete overlap among the population AND the money? Or will 
there be a *third* meeting, for the Boston Bellringers (the phantom entity 
that owns the funds)?

Hi all,

One or two people have suggested that having a combined Advent Guild/MIT
Guild meeting probably doesn't make a lot of sense this year.  While I
haven't heard from the MIT Guild officers, I'm inclined to agree: so unless
I hear otherwise, tomorrow's meeting will JUST deal with Advent Guild stuff
(insofar as the two can be separated.)  I've accordingly attached a revised
(and shorter!) draft agenda.

Mira Whiting has volunteered to set up the Zoom.  Thanks, Mira!

See you all tomorrow.
