Thank you for the write-up! Great idea for assigning different roles instead of just having one person present.And 100% agree about taking notes and saving them somewhere accessible.
Thank you for writing the post Koen!
As one of the organizers of the EA Rotterdam (non-university) group, this hits close to home.
Kidding aside, I really liked how you went through the arguments and provided a framework for thinking this true.

With regards to the 'part of the EA network', could that possibly be rephrased to 'part of the Effective Altruism network'? I think it would be good to do mention the full words instead of the abbreviation (as that wouldn't mean anything to new people)
I can also highly recommend Deep Work by Cal Newport, his main thesis is that 'real' work only happens/productivity is high when you're doing it for a few hours at a time instead of 15min blocks with constant interruptions. Edit: should have read the linked post first haha, so see this as another vote for Cal Newport
