FYI about loops. Our library has just installed a Loop in the Board Room. Last night the Board members were told to speak into the mics and keep the mics around 9 inches from their mouths. Well 7 Board members did that, and it was wonderful. Two board members slouched back in their seats and didn't try to make is work. After my anger subsided, I said to one member that he was too far from the mic (about 2-3 feet) and I could not hear what he was saying. He laughed and kept on slouching.
