What is the longest meeting you’ve ever seen?

While serving as Communications Director at a city, I witnessed a city council meeting that lasted until 3:15 a.m. At around midnight, the mayor led the council in stretching and calisthenics.

Have you ever witnessed or participated in a marathon meeting (of an elected or appointed body)? Would love to hear your stories!

Afraid I have – One of my jobs I worked on a reservation. I have attended more than my share of loooooooooooooonnnnnng meetings. With an elected school board (on numerous occasions) and with the Tribal council.

At an old job, there was a week-long requirement review “summit.” It was five days of 6-7 hours reviewing software requirements. Luckily, my team was only needed for a day.
