We’re making our Semiannual Membership Meeting even easier to attend—we’re going virtual! Starting this September, the meeting will be held via video conference call. The date and time are still being planned, but the call will be planned well away from ExpoEast for those members attending that trade show.
In making this change, we listened to many members who had found that the previous format of meeting during the Natural Products Expos was inconvenient. Instead, a video conference call will be easy and economical for all AAHP members to attend. We look forward to having all members participate in this inaugural video conference.
The Board is working to keep the virtual video conference call to approximately one hour, avoiding Fridays and Mondays, to accommodate everyone’s busy schedules. It will not be necessary to have a camera attached to your computer, although that would be helpful to strengthen the connection between members; we are also investigating software that will allow participation through a smart phone. During the coming months, the Board will utilize the video conference software two or three times to familiarize ourselves with the features and operation in order to make the Semiannual Meeting flow as smoothly as possible. A date, time, and agenda will be announced shortly.
