Virtual Meeting Best Practices Webinar

The necessary restrictions due to the COVID-19 outbreak have disrupted the way Oregonians live, work, and play. Public education is no exception. School boards all over the state are quickly learning to move their meetings online. In this webinar we will discuss issues around video conferencing technology, how to manage discussion and voting in virtual board meetings, handling public comment, and techniques for getting the most out of virtual meetings. Join Vince Adams and Renee Sessler (OSBA Board Development Specialists) for these topics and more in a free lunchtime webinar.

This webinar is free and starts at 12:00 p.m. on April 30, 2020.

Board secretaries, this webinar may be of particular interest to you. We ask that you please pass along this learning opportunity to your board members, especially board chairs, and encourage them to attend.

OSBA also provides fee-based trainings upon request. Contact OSBA Director of Board Development Steve Kelley (skelley@osba.org) for information.

We look forward to answering your questions and providing useful information on virtual public meetings.
