                      HOST VIRTUAL MEETINGS


We hope you continue to host meetings for your general body, executive board, or committees.

Check out some tips below on hosting effective virtual meetings:


  • Set meeting times in advance, and try to make them at a consistent time every week
  • Test out your technology before you start your meeting. Make sure your video and audio are working properly 
  • Start your meetings with a check-in or an icebreaker, or open the meeting early to allow people to build community and chat amongst themselves before going into formal club business
  • Continue to provide an agenda before your meeting starts 
  • Take meeting minutes and store them in a shared folder where group members have access
  • Allow people to provide their input during meetings. Set a time for members to share ideas 
    • Pro tip : you can use the breakout room feature in Zoom to have committee meetings 
  • Get feedback from your members by creating surveys or polls 
  • Teach your members how to use parliamentary procedures to conduct meetings, this will help you run your meetings more effectively
