Possible Meeting Styles:

  • Online Only: currently, most meetings continue virtual-only. Webex or other links are provided on the meeting page (online-only meetings are not listed in this post, since online meetings have been the status quo for over a year).
  • In-Person Only: meeting is back to the old physical location. Online meeting goes away.
  • Hybrid Meeting: a single meeting that can be attended in person or virtually. A phone or laptop at the meeting allows virtual participants to attend the in-person meeting and vice versa.
  • Two Separate Meetings: the “meeting” is holding separate in-person and online meetings. Eventually these will be listed separately but may be found on the same meeting page for the time being.

Possible Meeting Restrictions:

There may be limits stipulated by the venue operators or by group conscience.  Every meeting space and every meeting may have different guidelines.

Please study the individual meeting pages for any restrictions.

Restrictions MAY include:

  • Limits on maximum participants in the room.
  • Limits based on vaccination status.
  • Mask requirements (based or not based on vaccination status).
