Flounder Advisory Committee_ What's the point?

Below the schedule information for the SOUTHERN FLOUNDER ADVISORY
COMMITTEE MEETING. After some things I have read recently, I wonder
what the point is? The powers that be does not, will not, consider the
recommendations of the committee. So, again, what's the point of a
meeting? I guess we need to keep trying to influence the Marine
Fisheries folks but it's looking bleak for the fishery.
Thanks for letting me vent.
