SEWRPC Offered Free Trial Use Of Audio Device To Record Meetings

I noted in a Thanksgiving posting - - here - - that SEWRPC was involved in a dispute over the accuracy and completeness of its meetings' minutes because it still has a staff member take hand-written notes.

And that, for about $70, I had purchased a digital audio recorder with a computer upload feature so I could begin to keep a record of those SEWRPC meetings I attend.

If you will look in the comment section of that linked posting you will see an offer to SEWRPC of a higher-end, proven recorder.

The comment says:

"My company transcribes recorded voice. Last year I purchased a digital recorder because I was impressed by the quality of the digital recording. I have since loaned it free to two clients who were about to do interviews on (low quality) tapes.

I offer this device to SEWRPC for a meeting, after which they can easily upload the audio to a computer, to their web site. No charge. Just good will. They may just like it enough to buy one ($150 at Office Depot). November 26, 2010 9:15 AM."

The commenter has emailed me more information about his offer, so I'd be glad to facilitate the trial offer if SEWRPC is interested.

SEWRPC...... notoriously slow to keep up with "today's" technology.....or is it just their reluctance to let everyone know of their "good ol' boy" mentality.
