What is a Webinar?

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.
