Hybrid In-person/Virtual Meeting and Workshop Equipment
At the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council we are slowly reopening our office and will be holding our first in-person board meeting in September. For the past 17 months we have held every board meeting, panel review, and workshop in a virtual environment via Zoom.
As we move towards more in-person events we are toying with allowing for hybrid situations where some people can be present in person while others attend virtually. We wish to do this both for allowing folks to make their own personal health choices but also to allow for increased accessibility since we cover a very large geographic territory.
Does anyone have any experience with this? How has it worked for you? Any difficulties to be aware of?
And most importantly, what kind of audio/visual equipment do you use? Our current setup in our conference room is inadequate for picking up multiple voices in a meeting and are seeking ideas.
