24 hours notice was too little time to see the notice and plan to
attend. Some of us have day jobs: 48 or 72 hours advance notice would
have been very helpful. An invitation process that requires
registration by personal email and personal invitations also does not
sound like an invitation to the community and leaves no opportunity
for anonymous attendance, only post-meeting minutes or recordings that
may be redacted without notice. If a redaction is needed, a specific
notice that "we cut the mike for someone's medical privacy, they're
fine now!" would help reassure us that the *really good stuff* is not
getting snipped. There were times in my career when that need to cut
the mike was for *me*, so I can sympathize.

A link to the previous meeting's agenda and especially to the previous
meeting's minutes would be especially welcome. Might those be
