MAY 2020 - VIRTUAL MEETING May 5, 2020 9:47:37 GMT
Post by BrianRichards on May 5, 2020 9:47:37 GMT
As we are unable to hold our normal face to face monthly meetings we have decided to trial a low tech virtual meeting at 8pm on Tuesday evening (5th May) which should have been our meeting date.
As it’s a trial to see how it goes it will be kept very simple and will be hosted on our facebook notice board which is viewable by everybody even those who are nor registered on facebook – it’s just like reading a page with the only interaction being by either e-mailing outside the page or by replying to the posts IF you are logged in to facebook.
The format for the evening will be based on our meetings but will only last about an hour or so. To start with there will be a picture quiz to test your knowledge with about 30 minutes to answer the 30 questions and you can e-mail in your answers to Andrew . Then, just like our meetings, we will have the Chairman’s ‘parish notices’ which should only take a few minutes to read and then we will post a series of photos in groups of 20 or so, each with a theme. By the time you’ve viewed them all it should be around 9.15 at which point we will announce the quiz result and answers, then afterwards we will close the meeting with a short message.
This is quite a passive way of doing things but it’s simple and low tech, just like watching television and occasionally clicking on the remote. Nothing to be scared of!
If it works well, and it is received well, we will run a meeting this way every 1st Tuesday of the month, and we will try to develop the presentation side of things to include video and audio accompaniment, but we are going one small step at a time until we are confident. We may even try some short audio and visual presentations just like the club meetings, but you will only hear the speaker and not see his face- at least not to begin with! You never know we might manage to do a full on line talk eventually.
We hope you will join us and this is the link to the notice page where the meeting will be held: www.facebook.com/AirBritainStanstedBranch
