  • Phoning it in ...

    Now that our council has expanded our VOA cabinet is relying on phone conferences. Each youth officer is more than an hour away from the others.
    We tried video but that had a host of problems. (Didn't work for everybody, sometimes not for anybody. When it did work didn't help the discussion advance much.)
    Except for 15 minutes of fumbling because the wrong # was circulated, our first phone conference of the year seemed to go well, and I'm looking forward to hearing our VOA President improve as the year goes forward.

    Besides making sure everyone has the right number , Does anyone have tips/tricks for managing phone conferences?

    My local Eagle Scout Association does our monthly meetings by phone conference. It helps if there's somebody clearly in charge with an agenda. If people have something that needs to be brought up, if they can get it to the coordinator or leader of the conference it helps keep things a bit more organized.


    • #3 is something my business uses all the time. One scout could have the agenda on his computer and share with the group. Everyone else with an Android or computer can link in and follow the agenda, preso, or whatever the host wants to share. Set up phone conferencing and you're all set to go. By the way, if the remote wants to edit something on the host computer, it's possible as well.
