Video Webconferencing Trials

In 2011 Heath VK6TWO started researching the use of ‘WebConferencing’ for use at committee and planning meetings. This was brought on by several key active members often working away from the Perth area which made attending/arranging meetings rather difficult.

Given recent discussion and interest in the idea, further research has been done and the committee have trialed several solutions for suitability for GM’s, Practical sessions, Committee meetings and planning meetings.

It’s expected that we may end up with two soltions aimed at differnt uses. First being a featureful and interactive solution to enable effective planning and committee meetings, and the second being for general meetings so that members can ‘attend’ via webconference.  This should enable more time to be spent on ‘making progress’ instead of driving in the car to/from meetings.

Further testing will continue by the committee, potentially for some initial ‘planning’ and once the best solution is decided on, the GM preferred solution will be sent out to enable members to remotely attend meetings.
