“Where there is a will, there is a way.”
In the best traditions of homebuilder adaptability to change, our chapter is continuing to provide aviation education and interactive opportunities for members using “physical distancing compliant” communications methods. We have compared and tested various group teleconferencing approaches, and chosen a new free offering from a well established industry leader, Webex.com
Webex offers the ability to create an online meeting with up to 100 participants that supports “Hollywood Squares” style participant videos and audio for those who have a webcam-enabled device such as an iPad, iPhone or recent vintage Windows laptop. EAA 1541 can show PowerPoint slides and stream digital movies including sound using this, for our “News You Can Use” programs, IMC Club presentations, and evening member meetings.
Importantly, Webex also enables those without a computer to call in by phone for the audio portion of the event, and also log in via their web browser to see the video even if they do not have a camera or microphone attached to their computer.
Our first event for which everyone on our chapter mailing list will get an email with connection information and a Webex invitation will be our upcoming April membership meeting, starting at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, April 15, 2020.
