Event date: 7 April 2020
With COVID 19 lockdown we decided that we'd still like to be in contact with our members so we planned our first virtual members meeting to stay in touch with our members.
Surprisingly, we had a great response and after a few teething issues, as some of our members were having technical issues, it wasn't long before we all had our screens up and our meeting started.
We found that we had a lot of members who live further afield come online, which was great to be able to connect with them and for them to be able to chat with us and e-meet us and other members they hadn't met before.
After the formalities were over with, we discovered that some of our more tech savy members were changing their back grounds to look like they were flying in their Lear Jet to San Francisco, while others were on tropical islands sipping cocktails. This was a great bit of fun.
Considering this was our first virtual meeting, it went off really well and we had some great conversations and even had a new member join up from the meeting, which was brilliant.
We feel very passionate about staying incotact with our club through these tough times and this was a really great way of doing it. Very happy with our first meeting and look forward to including these types of meeting in our calendar, even after lockdown.
