In keeping with the current positivity within the administration of the Association, much thought has gone into how we can enhance IGBA2021 and bring it to our overseas members. Especially those who would normally attend, but cannot this year due to a change in UK Import regulations regarding Avian stock movements.
Do we hire video equipment and try to stream online ? Do we engage with The Canary Room to record the event ? Do we try something else?
Whatever the decision its a case of if we don’t try we will never know and we need to provide members with the opportunity to see what is going on at our Events.
Unfortunately contact with The Canary Room by Adrian Short has identified they are unable to help us on this occasion but who knows what the future might hold.
So thought turned to TRIALING A ZOOM TRANSMISSION – The committee knows it works for our meetings so why will it not work for LIVE Transmission of IGBA2021?
Depending upon the response of our overseas members we will introduce another first for the IGBA this time at the Members Show.
Access to the Members Show link will be available to members only, on a registration basis exactly the same as registering for a monthly presentation. You will need to go to website page Events Page select IGBA Events and then select the ZOOM (5) event and register. Closer to the event you will receive a link to the event. You will be able to dip in and out depending upon individual personal circumstances.
Remember this is a Trial to provide something new and different. There might well be teething problems so be kind if things go wrong, which we sincerely hope will not be the case.
