Running remote committee meetings
Remote committee meetings can make use of existing Nexus SharePoint committee sites and Teams online meeting functionality
We do not recommend creating a new Team site to manage remote committees. Remote committee meetings should make use of existing Nexus SharePoint committee sites and Teams online meeting functionality.
A Note on Governance
Using Teams for committee meetings is permitted under council regulations for member participation
The regulations for committees are available to view online.
See section 2.6 in Part 2 which covers attendance. Para (3) states:
(3) A member who is participating in a meeting by telephone, video-conference or any other means of communication which permits all members simultaneously to hear one another, shall be considered present and therefore shall count towards the quorum.
As with any face to face meeting participants need to be physically well enough to attend and engage with the agenda.
