Tip of the Month – To zoom or not to zoom
Many groups are considering whether meetings should remain online or as government guidelines allow go back to in person. There isn’t going to be a solution that suits everyone. Why not survey members, find out preferences, consider alternating zoom v’s in person meetings or provide an in person and zoom option for attendance.
While many groups were initially forced to meet online we are hearing some positive feedback from volunteers regarding zoom meetings. Although the networking or social aspect of meetings may be lessened meetings can be more focused on agenda items and an efficient use of time and may serve a purpose for your group going forward.
