Several of the London Branches have held a series of Hustings events providing an opportunity for committee election candidates to share their perspectives on why they want to stand and as an opportunity for members who are voting to meet the candidates seeking support in getting them elected.
Following their lead, we are going to host the Online Branch Hustings on Crowdcast in x6 sessions as follows.
2.00pm - 2.30pm: VCEC - Variety Circus & Entertainers Committee
2.30pm - 3.00pm: Young Members and Women's Committees
3.00pm - 3.30pm: Deaf and Disabled Members Committee
3.30pm - 4.00pm: Dance and Designers/Directors Committees
6.00pm - 6.30pm: Stage and LGBT+ Committees
6.30pm - 7.00pm: Audio and Screen & New Media Committees
CHANGE PLATFORM (to appear.in)
7.00pm - 8.00pm:
A video room open to all members - talking about turnout and those committees with unopposed candidates.
I know, that's quite a program! With the version of crowdcast.io I have access to, (Thank you Crowdcast for the extended trial account) I'm limited to 30 min sessions and 10 participants per event/session. In hindsight, I think that works quite well for this type of event. I think the session breakdown format could work nicely for agenda based meetings too. Keeping to time would mean changing 'location' but it would open meetings up for to chose exactly which items they wanted to be present for.
So for the Hustings please sign up and select which session you want to be present at. Each session can accommodate up to 10 participants
