April 11, 2020 Meeting Summary

A special meeting was called to discuss using the web site Zoom.com and to share the platform with members that chose to participate.

Online: Board members present where, Jeff, John, Steve, Dan and Jim. A few non-board members participated.

We decided to move ahead with our meetings online for the foreseeable future until the
Covid-19 threat has passed.

John volunteered to host the April 19th meeting. For security purposes each meeting needs a separate web address and password. John will either need to communicate the upcoming meeting to membership or send the details to Jim for communication. Our next meeting is this Sunday (4/19/2020), the meeting notice will be sent out soon.

There will be a short board meeting at 12:45 prior to the meeting starting at 1:00.

We discussed the possibility of having parallel meetings, in person and on Zoom once the C-19 issue is gone. There are many uncertainties and aspects that would have to be worked out if we try to do this. Future discussion would occur if we decide to look into this further.

We need to think and plan to use this tool (online meetings) to better serve membership.

We’ll be asking people what they want to see in future meetings.

Will also be investigating who is out there to make demonstrations, recorded or live.

We don’t need to talk Eisenhower, closed.

If necessary Jeff will put out the meeting agenda or mention important items when meeting notifications are sent out.

Time will be budgeted for show and tell. This first online meeting will consist of a short business section with most of the time dedicated to the show and tell and having people talk about what they’ve been doing.
