Conducting Remote Meetings

Considering having your club board and committee meetings online.   Certainly you can do a teleconference; however, more effective is a webinar where participants are able to share their computer screen to display documents (agendas, reports) and videos.  Most service providers include option for each participant to have their camera on and thus see each other live.  There's instant 'chats' to indicate for example - whose up next, give suggestions (mute your microphone). 

Governor debi announces that the District will reimburse clubs who purchase Zoom through Rotary Global Awards. Use the discount code: "ZOOMROTARY" to save 20%!

The district will reimburse for the 1 host up to an annual purchase.  Make sure to hit the 'apply' discount. An annual subscription is approximately $120 before taxes with the discount.
