Great idea. However:
1. Many of these publications are offered for sale by the local sections. They represent a source of income for the organiztion (which might be small), which local boards might not want to give up.
2. Many of the presentations contain copyrighted materials. The authors have objected in the past to sharing their work products on the internet. Although a slide does not take much time to produce, the information on that slide is what many of the authors sell for a living!
