The Council held its first virtual meeting May 15, 2020. Council members called in via telephone in order to participate, and staff presentations were available online through the Adobeconnect meeting platform and accessible through links on the Council’s website. Attendees could listen in as they would during a regular Council meeting – either through their computer or through the Adobeconnect app on a phone. As always, all meeting materials were posted through links on the Council’s eAgenda.
Motions were posted in real time on Adobeconnect, and also posted on the Council’s eAgenda while the Council deliberated. All public comment for this meeting was submitted beforehand through the Council’s online commenting portal on the eAgenda.
The Council will also hold its June meeting virtually through Adobeconnect, with the added component of the public able to provide public comment over the phone during the meeting. The intent is also to use webcameras for Council members and presenters during discussion and deliberation. The SSC and the AP will also be using the same platform and format. The meeting link will be the same throughout all of the June meetings: https://npfmc.adobeconnect.com/june2020. Detailed instructions for the public for joining and how to give public comment will be posted on the Council’s eAgenda and website. Staff contact is firstname.lastname@example.org.
