Oh dear. That's really {s,b}ad. The closest thing I know about related 
to AC Newbies is <https://www.w3.org/wiki/AdvisoryCommittee/NewbieInfo>. 
If there is some additional info that should be added, please do update 
that doc or send me the details and I'll be happy to update it. That 
said, perhaps there are better ways/medium to reach Newbies (f.ex. a 
5-10 minute video that address the issue you raise as well as other AC 
Newbie FAQs). (I just filed a related issue in the AC tracker 
<https://www.w3.org/Member/track/issues/7>).

Yes, I definitely agree it would be good to know why there is such a low 
turnout. (I just filed a related Issue in the AC tracker 
<https://www.w3.org/Member/track/issues/6>).
