Welcome to the experimental HLRPOA open meeting site!

Welcome to the experimental HLRPOA open meeting site.  I’ve taken a standard blog format to start with, thinking that we could stage open meetings on-line using a single posting for a meeting, with the conversational part of the meeting provided in the comments.  Anyone who wishes can follow along as people post their comments, and respond in kind with their own remarks.  This will take a little patience as I figure out how to configure the software; but it is my intention not to require users to create accounts in order to add comments; however in that case I will ask that all comments be signed with an identifiable name and/or lot number, and I will take it upon myself to remove comments that do not conform.  If it will still allow creation of user accounts, there will be no objection to your setting one up; but I hope not to require it.

Let me know what you think by commenting on the next post, and we’ll see how it works out!

Joel B Levin, Secretary HLRPOA BoD
