The term Webinar has been around for a while, meaning a ‘web seminar’. Now, with the pandemic and improved technology they have leapt in importance. Essentially a webinar is a well organised web meeting, commonly used by companies and organisations to get information to large groups. For our AGM we will use a webinar licence from Zoom to have a meeting of up to 100 people. An email invitation will go out in advance inviting registration for the meeting. Members complete this simple form and that’s it. Each will get a zoom invitation on the day.
In the webinar there can be a number of ‘panelists’ who appear via video and present information and visuals if necessary. Participants will be able to send chat comments and questions and they will be able to vote on resolutions.
Those who do not want to participate from home will be able to attend a group zoom at the Box Factory. There will not be any wine and food, but there is talk of the Board organising Uber-Eats to deliver these to each participant’s home.
