Jeanine Wilson: Suggested using GoToMeeting for our Board Meetings to increase participation. A motion was made but no second. We are going to table this idea until more details can be gathered on cost and estimated use. The concerns were: we would lose the value that comes with a face to face meeting. If we do decide to use this service we would need to hold all board members more accountable for participation. Jeanine will send email to Carol regarding pricing. A suggestion was made to replace lunch meeting with a accredited webinar. We would like to set it up to where the webinar could be accessed at any time by Mobile SHRM members. Could we set up something to where the conference sessions could be recorded and posted to our site for Mobile SHRM members to access if they weren’t able to attend the live session. There would be a reasonable charge for this. We also discussed starting to use Square to accept payment at the door of our lunch meetings. This would also allow us to accept SHRM foundation donations via debit/credit card.
Meeting dismissed at 9:26. There will be no July Board Meeting.
