A wasted evening?

It's when a meeting has trouble agreeing the minutes of the previous meeting of the same committee that you know that it's not pulling as a single body. And it took a whole hour at last night's FSB regional committee meeting to get past that item on the agenda.

It's when the HQ representative is seated at the table, correcting the meeting on procedural points throughout the evening, at the expense of getting the business through, that you realise that a committee has lost its direction.

And it's when you sit with a dozen other supposedly busy people around a table for over three hours and come away thinking "and what have we really achieved" that you come to realise that this is probably not the best use of your time and efforts.

I'm not making any personal or issue specific comments here - they are best left behind closed doors - but I do feel that this commitee, this organisation, may be something I don't want to be involved with for too much longer!
