Virtual Meetings for Granting and Working Groups

  • May 26, 2015 at 7:04 pm #1457

    Does any granting or working group meet via online means (e.g., Citrix’ Go to Meeting or Go to Training) instead of meeting in a physical space?  If so, please share your group’s experience.

    As clerk of PYM’s Greenleaf Fund granting group, I would like to explore online meetings if PYM can accommodate them.

    The Young Adult Friend Working Group has met via Google Hangout before (free online group video.) It has worked pretty well, although allowing 15 minutes or so before the meeting is important to make sure everyone is all set up with microphones that work. It’s not quite as stable as GoTo Meeting, and everyone needs a reasonably fast internet connection. (But you can give everyone funny hats!)

    I’ve also used Google Hangout for a support committee I was clerking for a Friend in the Peace Corps. The committee members were all over the country, and I don’t think it would have been possible without being able to see one another!
