The sound at the beginning is barely audible, but gets better after a few minutes. Unfortunately, the CBE refused to allow us to plug into their audio soundboard despite having six empty slots. We formally sent a request in to the CBE to allow us this privilege before the meeting, but we have not yet heard back from them. We have been assured that it will be discussed before the next board meeting and we hope to have better sound next time.
