A well-run meeting

At 3:30 this afternoon I went to a committee meeting.  I was not looking forward to this meeting; the reminder from the secretary of the committee had attached two files: one an agenda, the other 200 pages of supporting materials.  And it exhorted us to "come prepared to stay a while".
I fully expected to be there until 6pm or later, but thanks to a committee chair who knows how to run a meeting, I was out, across campus, and home by 5:30!

Yours, in praise of this skill, and wishing more people possessed it!
