Maybe also have a volunteer post to the main channel when a meeting is
starting on another?  Would hopefully catch any strays, and the folks on
the regular channel then wouldn't be clueless when some hapless volunteer
shows up looking for a meeting that is happening elsewhere.  Might also
pick up some extra people on the meeting channel, so call it hi-leverage
community outreach.
