Hi Bruce, 
This is something near and dear to my heart. 

The entire ESIP meeting is streamed via Webex and available for free. We have done this for the last 6 meetings. We also share our webex capabilities with other agencies to support remote capacity for their meetings too. There is research however that moving entirely virtual all the time is not the silver bullet and there is necessity for in person meetings.

There is always space for continued improvement of hybrid meetings. It would be helpful to discuss this on next Monday's visioneers call.
