Notes taken by Kathy Ridgway during the EFASIG zoom meeting on Monday June 09, 11.00 am, attended by 7 EFASIG meeting group members.

  • General agreement that shorter sessions spread over a number of weeks are more likely to be attended
  • Proposed length 60-90 minutes about right
  • Start meeting 10-15 minutes before first presenter starts to allow introductions and for any technical issues
  • Have a meeting guide/etiquette for zoom event - camera set up, presenter should use headset, everyone should be muted when not speaking 
  • Still to discuss if available 'on demand' after the event  check use of recorded sessions with BMSS
