Hearing Well During Meetings

Hearing in a meeting can be challenging, especially as we combine in-person with Zoom participants. Joyce contributed the following suggestions to help with this. 

  • Arrange the circle so that the speaker, the chair, and maybe even the zoom guests are beside each other and can be seen by everyone in the circle. (Maybe this could be a regular positioning so that people who can’t hear well know how to orient themselves.)
  • Everyone should hold the talking stone (conference speaker) near their voice, and speak loudly and clearly.
  • If a large group is expected, make a double circle, rather than having folks sit so far apart.
  • After the sharing time, ask the zoom participants if everyone was able to hear well
  • Suggest zoom participants who can’t hear well try earbuds in their computers.

Thanks, Joyce.

Next Meeting

Our next meeting won’t be until Monday, September 16th. We will continue to meet in Room 3 of the Community Centre, but will have our meetings from 3:00 – 4:30 pm rather than in the evening.
