Chapters with Capabilities Can Help Us Beta Virtual Meetings

Through the end of the year, we are encouraging all officers who have access to services such as Webex or GoToWebinar, to participate in a beta test by scheduling a virtual meeting through the chapter. A virtual meeting is one where all members attend via website. We are very interested in attracting those members who have not attended in the past, and we believe that a virtual option may be an answer. However, we also need to work through the fine details and we need chapters to help out. If you’re interested in trying this, be aware of the following when applying for approval of a virtual meeting:

  • Virtual meetings are requested online as usual, although the words “Virtual Meeting” must be part of the title
    • Potential attendees will recognize that the meeting is virtual through the name
  • CEUs will be awarded and the event will show online
  • There are no specific requirements of inclement weather or distance to travel in order to hold the virtual meeting
  • Officers must use their own Webex or GoToWebinar services
  • Attendance should be taken by the officers through the service’s online registration option

We are hoping as many chapters as possible will participate so we can launch this new venue for meetings in 2019!
