Staying Connected with Zoom.
Key principles of good governance include; participation, equity, a voice in decision making, transparency, accountability, responsiveness, consensus and strategic leadership. Underpinning all of these principles is good communication. So, what happens when you can’t meet in person? How do you maintain clear communication channels while staying connected?
Firstly, you will need to consider the tools you will need to help members communicate and record decisions made and action items.
Zoom video conferencing is great for meeting together online, assuming everyone is equipped with a camera, microphone and has access to internet service.
