Resources and Support for u3as on Hybrid Meetings - Drop In sessions Wednesdays from 8th September 13.00-14.00
Re: Help to run Hybrid Meetings – please share this information.

Many of you may be aware that we have been working with a group of Tech skilled u3a members who have been collating and developing resources and information for u3as to run Hybrid Meetings.

This will culminate in a website covering information for running hybrid meetings of different sizes and complexity, How To Guides and short videos, and details of different technology and devices to consider.

We are aware that as most u3as are getting ready to restart activities in September the need for this information is now and the team will therefore be running drop in sessions that members can come along to via Zoom, to learn about the support that is available and to raise questions and request advice on alternative ways of running u3a meetings.

These sessions will be held every Wednesday between 13.00-14.00 - see link in side panel. Please can you cascade this information to the committees in your regions.
