Running a Hybrid Meeting

First, let us define a Hybrid meeting.  This a traditional AA meeting in a room with members present and a secretary running the meeting – all very familiar.   Now, if the meeting room has a strong WiFi connected to a good Internet Connection[1] then on the secretaries’ desk we can have two laptops or one laptop and one tablet both with good cameras and microphones [2]and an external large monitor or video projector for laptop 2 so that room can see and hear the Zoom. Via the first camera and microphone the Zoom can see and hear the room. And so we have one (hybrid) meeting.

[1] The internet connection should be at least 8mbps down and 2mbps up

[2] It may be necessary to add a good quality external mic and room camera to the second laptop and if the
room is large a good external monitor or projector as well.
