Not sure if this is the right place but I wonder if creating a "meeting" for each interim session is the best approach in the long term.

tools-arch@ seems more appropriate but since they aren't taking posts from non-members....

I appreciate that in the short term, all of these "interim" sessions by different owners can be best organized into their own meeting.

If there is a plan to rectify this, then I would like to know. If not, I can work around this in presentation but it's a bit of work and I don't want to start if there's another solution on the horizon.

I'm thinking of presenting these sessions in weekly collections and ignoring the current "meeting" classification with one session per meeting. I will create a pseudo meeting for "Week of April 13" and "Week of April 20", etc.

Thanks for any insight,
