We had a little bit of that last night.

Sure.  Are you volunteering?  ;-)

One challenge is that no single person can answer every question from
every newcomer.  Another challenge is that this plan turns the
attendance of that one 'voice' person into an obligation.  We don't
want that, do we?  I expect that the 'voice' person doesn't want that.

We have had meeting announcements welcoming newcomers and assuring
them that "asking anybody is okay," but we don't do that every month.
