Board Hears Details of Virtual Membership Meeting

During the Board meeting, Cheryl Gendron, NFRC’s meetings manager, presented information on NFRC’s first “virtual” meeting, planned for July 19-22, 2010. The online meeting will take the place of the usual in-person Summer Membership Meeting.

The meeting will be conducted as a webinar, which can accommodate up to 1,000 participants. Business will be limited to committee and subcommittee sessions. There will be no task group meetings.

“Staff will be extensively testing this new process,” Gendron told the Board. “There will be a dry run a few weeks before the meeting with staff and a handful of registrants.”

This will be the first time that NFRC will conduct an online membership meeting. Gendron invited feedback on the process and encouraged anyone who’s attended online meetings to share their thoughts.
