Hybrid Society Meetings


Hybrid Society Meetings Compendium
(updated 2 June 2021)

Cousin Russ and DearMYRTLE present a plan to aid progressive societies who recognize limited in-person meeting attendance can be augmented by a virtual component.

Hybrid Society Meetings - Intro 
Moving forward, we aim to support society leadership's embracing technology to produce hybrid meetings, special interest groups, courses and classes. The embedded video is the introduction to a series of short training videos to guide transition to successful hybrid meetings.

Meeting or Webinar?
Meetings are great for collaboration, useful in a classroom or institute setting. Meetings tend to be more formal, and do cost additional $$.

Society leadership must set policy for recordings, allocate private space for members-only access. Considerations are outlined in this episode.

Most speakers will permit recording with private access, for a specified period of time. Since you society leadership has already made plans, it makes negotiating much easier.

no expensive equipment required. Minimum 1. Laptop 2. Additional external webcam (Logitec C920) 3. Lapel mic (for in-person presenter) 4. Tripod (optional).

Room Layout
Fortunately the recommended "dry run" a week before will clear up concerns for setting up the equipment for both in-person and virtual attendees and speakers. \

Social Media - COMING SOON!

Setting Up Zoom - COMMING SOON!
