In these unprecedented times, our daily lives are changing rapidly, and we are having to respond with alternative solutions to connecting with one another, either personally or professionally. The Southern Vermont Economy Project has put in time and effort into providing the resources on attending or hosting online meetings using the platform Zoom. In addition to information on how to get started on Zoom, Zoom Video Tutorials, and Suggestions to Avoid a Meeting Getting Hacked, the SVEP manager has also put together step-by-step videos and PDFs on how to use certain features on Zoom to stand in for what you’d normally be doing in person.
Recently, a town had reached out for some direct technical assistance on how to use Zoom for a select board meeting that needed to go into executive session. The SVEP manager subsequently put together a step-by-step document on how to utilize the breakout room feature for this very purpose and is making it available to anyone who is interested in learning more.
The step-by-step PDF can be found at the very bottom of the Online Meeting Resources page.
If your town or non-profit is looking for some direct technical assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to the SVEP Manager, Sarah Lang, at email@example.com
