Where is the physical meeting actually going to be held? If it is close to home I will leave the room for those that are too far to attend.

For the Summer 2012 meeting there will be no physical meeting location. The State of MI only requires us to have one face to face meeting each year to stay legal.

Thanks, I had heard rumor that this was the lowest attendance and was under consideration to skip it.

We have talked about eliminating the summer meeting in the past, but this seemed like a good opportunity to increase attendance and try something new at the same time.

It is a step towards solving what everyone on GL4x4 is complaining about. I have seen some interest from younger members there maybe shoot a pm to them with a link to this info so they can see what everything is about and draw them to this board as well. Just a thought I know my say caries little weight since I am so new here.

First off, I love the idea of a Web meeting! Maybe its just the nerd in me, or the fact that I have utilized GoToMeeting in the past with great success.

WhiteRhino, interaction can be done via telephone, voice over your PC or Smartphone, webcam or simple text chat.

For some great info on how it works, http://www.gotomeeting.com/fec/web_meeting

See ya at 8 this evening!

Seemed like that went well. I think Bob said there was 16 people in the call. I love the idea of tieing it into the next meetings. If that is a possibility, a good investment might be a conference room microphone (http://www.amazon.com/MXL-AC404-USB-Conference-Microphone/dp/B001TGTDFM). Also, doing this, would allow the presenter to run studio software such as TechSmith's Camtersa (TechSmith is Lansing based) on the presentation computer and capture the meeting, then upload it for others who were not able to attend.
