Sue Alderson, immediate past President of the Democratic Club of Vista, will guide us through how to run an effective meeting.
Running an effective online meeting relies on teamwork. How to let participants into the meeting, credential members, moderate a discussion, take notes, keep an eye on the clock, fix technical glitches, read the chat, and appear calm - all at the same time?
We’ll share best practices, answer questions and provoke some discussion.
How to make meetings safe and welcoming?
Should the Chat be open/closed, for all or part of the meeting?
With the Raised Hand in Zoom, how to balance speakers for/against a position?
How and when to use Breakout Rooms?
