I might be serving on a public committee subject to open meeting laws. These laws in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, such as RSA VI-91-A , stipulate that all deliberations must be held in a meeting open to the public.
The problem is that some issues discussed by the committee may be very complicated and difficult to discuss in a limited time format public meeting. If a committee member wants to write a memo to the committee dealing with some complex issue, then how does that jive with the open meeting laws? Is it possible to just file the memo as a "public document" somehow, or is it basically illegal to write memos to the other members of the committee?
