What is a Digest?
All of our meetings in Aleppo are video recorded and posted to YouTube. Shortly after the meetings, we send an email that breaks down what happened during the meeting, point-by-point. Each bullet on the email includes a link to jump to that particular portion of the meeting video so residents can watch the topics from the meeting that are important to them and disregard the rest.
Does a Digest replace Minutes?
No. We still prepare and keep minutes for each meeting and they remain the legal record of the meeting. Due to technical issues, there are occasionally instances where no Digest is available. Finally, the Digests–by their nature–are not all inclusive, but a link to the recording of the entire meeting is included at the top of each email.
How do I get Digests sent to me by email?
The beauty of our Digest system is that it feeds the activity of our meetings directly into the inbox of many Aleppo steak-holders. Our Digests are read by residents, the press, and higher-elected officials. To receive these digests in your inbox, click here to fill out a quick form. (We’re your neighbors. We don’t want to get SPAM, either. Trust us, the emails you’ll get from us will not be junk.)
