This just doesn't resonate with me. Maybe your Bishop likes to do things this way but the next Bishop may have absolutely no interest in having PowerPoint-heavy meetings all the time. (Makes me wonder if your Bishop's professional work involves a lot of this stuff. Otherwise, I don't think the average member expects it.) For many of us, creating such presentations would be far more time-consuming than it's worth, making it specifically impractical. For some (perhaps your ward's leaders) it's easy, but the FM Group isn't going to want to invest in such a project if, a year or two later, it will sit idle week after week.
If this is so important, I'll point out that the last time I was a Sam's Club I saw a remarkably small and affordable projector by LG which seemed (at a glance) to present a nice picture. There must be other, similar items on the market. Maybe the Bishop could just buy one for himself rather than wait for the FM Group. And he could easily take it home and use it for anything else in his media-heavy routine.
