July 2022 Chapter of the Month

Fort Worth/Mid-Cities

As eager as the chapter was to get back to in-person meetings when COVID-19 cases numbers began to decline, the board knew a virtual meeting option would need to be included. To host a hybrid event, the chapter used two tripods, an iPad, an iPhone, and a wireless microphone to stream live on Zoom. Additionally, the chapter worked with stakeholders to gauge interest and ensure their event met all safety guidelines. The chapter limited in-person attendance and required attendees to sign a waiver and wear masks. Working with the venue, the chapter identified areas that would require extra sanitation and found ways that venue employees and patrons could use the space with little risk of transmission. As a result, the chapter saw increased event attendance at their inaugural event and had hosted three successful hybrid meetings at the time of submission.
