The reason you are getting so many fewer responses to the items is not because people are not concerned. It is because this forum is meaningless. There is nothing meaningfully connected to providing you input here that comes close to attending meetings and seeing our faces and hearing our voices, and allowing others to hear our voices too. This feels like shouting in the wind. As a result, you should do what you promissed: meet once per month and only deal with items of essential business.
