No one likes writing up meeting minutes quickly 🙂

Actually, I have been thinking (try not to be shocked). The use of high precision photometry required for exo-planets, the high precision astrometry required for comets and the detailed spectroscopy of supernovae moves amateurs into situations where they are very much working at a level previously associated with professionals. So perhaps, whether or not the exo-planet section appears, the BAA needs to upgrade its pro-amateur collaboration efforts and perhaps focus a bit more effort on that to ensure those with the skills and inclination will be in demand and actively engaged.
