On March 27, 2007 VEHOA held the first ever General Assembly of Members. This was a great meeting and had a turn out of about 44 people representing homeowners from all parts of the Valle. Since many of our homeowners do not live in Valle Escondido full time, we felt that it would be best to record this meeting so that all homeowners could have the same information.
This was our first meeting and we learned a lot. We set up a digital recorder with two microphones, one for the Steering Committee and one for the assigned speaker. We now know that next time we need a public address system as the room acoustics were not great. We also know that we can tie this PA system into the digital recorder and produce a better audio file. With that said I am sure you will find the recording very interesting and helpful as the Steering Committee answered numerous questions. When the meeting moves to the open question and answer phase you will need to turn your volume way up to hear the question, but will need to turn it down when the Committee answers as our microphones worked perfectly.
I hope this recording in helpful in keeping all homeowners involved in the daily issues of the Homeowners Association. Please feel free to email us any questions, suggestions or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The audio file is large as the meeting was about 2 hours. The best way to put this file on your computer is:

3. A window will pop up and you can choose where to put the file, I put mine on the Desktop so it is easily found.

5. When the file is completed and on your computer you can go to the Desktop (or where ever you put the file) and double click the file, your computer's audio/MP3 software will open the file and begin playing.
