The Massachusetts Select Board Association will host a free Zoom webinar on June 15 to discuss the technology and staffing required for municipalities to run successful virtual and hybrid meetings.

Virtual and hybrid public meetings have allowed municipalities to continue operations during the pandemic, and have provided the additional benefit of enhanced equity in access, public engagement and transparency in government operations. But these meetings require both the right technology and the right staffing to ensure an orderly meeting with limited interruptions.

Franklin TV Executive Director Peter Fasciano will provide an overview of the technology that his town uses to run virtual and hybrid meetings, and will discuss technical issues that may arise during these types of meetings and how to best address them.

Cohasset Procurements & Contracts Manager Michelle Leary will discuss staffing needs for hybrid and virtual meetings, with a focus on some of the unique challenges faced in small towns.

The webinar will run from noon to 1 p.m. An email with the registration link has been sent to all select board members. Advance registration is required.
