    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    The current restrictions on movement in Scotland mean that many organisations are having to get used to a new way of working. Many have moved online- hosting staff meetings, committee meetings and even Annual or Extraordinary General Meetings using video conferencing tools. How legitimate are these meetings, though, and are there any additional things that have to be done to ensure that they're valid? What are the best ways of approaching online meetings, from a technological point of view?

    This session will look to answer those questions and, in particular, will explore:

    • how to ensure that an online meeting is legally compliant;
    • different tools for running an effective online meeting;
    • alternative methods of decision-making for when online meetings aren't practical or desirable; and
    • thoughts on the future of online meetings, post-lockdown.

    Who should attend?

    This session is targeted mainly at those running an organisation- its directors, trustees and committee members.

    Accessing this session

    Appropriately enough, we'll be holding this session on Zoom.

    The link and password for the Zoom meeting will be sent out shortly before the session begins. You're welcome to use video or just audio.  You don't need to download any software, simply follow the link we send out next week and enter the password when prompted. 

    Questions and ideas

    If you'd like to ask anything in advance of the session, or if you'd like to suggest something that you'd specifically like us to cover, please contact Michael Nicholson.
