Guys, if you've been to LDConf you've surely seen the bundles of papers you get in the full conference pack? Imagine, oooo, about double that. And from what I have heard from more seasoned FCCers, this is not a particularly hefty meeting.

Going to need a ring binder per meeting by the looks of things. I mean theoretically I could do it all electronically, but between their insistence on using formats I don't use and therefore the lack of ease of note-taking, it was easier just to print it all out. YAY the environment!

FCC: not for the dyslexic.

What format do they specify? Could you use a freeware office program to open them?

I've tried doing everything on a laptop before now, but with the pace of FCC meetings it's a non-starter for almost anyone. I'm pretty sure the policy office will send you a printed copy of the papers by default if you ask (We have a laser printer at home, so it's not an issue for me) or if not, I have the ability to quickly convert documents to PDF format.

Being on FCC generally involves far too much paper. I now pay extra for the not-at-all-green option of receiving all the papers for every conference - having a printed copy of the agenda/directory with the standing orders in is a must anyway.
