> 2. Send a maximum of one reminder email regarding a one-time public
> meeting, and also send a maximum of one reminder email regarding events

>
> 3. If extending a deadline, send only an announcement of the extension with
> no additional reminder.
>
> 4. Send only one email to announce a recurring weekly meeting, with no
> additional reminders. Meetings which recur less often, such as biweekly or
> monthly, may continue to be announced with one additional reminder.

> At this time these are proposals only. Comments are welcome. If the
