Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this Terri. This has been in my thoughts too as our online meetings this past year + have drawn in people who would not attend regular meetings. Of course it has also meant some of the regular ‘in person’ attendees have fallen away. Being able to offer remote connection at a regular meeting would be nice…and interesting to see how people accept it.
I hope others will share their thoughts and their experiences with this.

We are playing with the idea of offering hybrid of in-person and virtual meeting this fall. We feel if speakers can present virtually from their home or office to a monitor at our in-person meeting at the library we would be able to have different speakers who live too far away to come in person. We did that with Gayle Hannah speaking using Skype when I was with a different Chapter, which was very well attended in a community college classroom. I was not involved with that setup.
