Text Box: May 21st, Rosamond Chamber of Commerce had its’ first public meeting via Zoom.
Covid 19 has affected our ability to hold public meetings at Hummel Hall and is closed until further notice by the county.  Additionally, since the Chamber is not under the umbrella of essential business, the chamber has been closed for regular business as well.
The Stay-at-Home requirements have sparked a new medium of doing business—Zoom Meetings.  Although Zoom is not the only platform out there, like MS Text Box: Teams and Go-To-Meeting, but it is the most commonly used platform that can utilize large amount of participants.  Although Zoom has been plagued with various security breaches—they have been minimized and supposedly resolved with their new 5.0 release.  Yet, for large audiences and low sensitive material being shared, it more than meets the demand.
Although our first meeting did not meeting the quorum requirement and was not high on attendance, we had a great group and a very successful meeting!  After the Chamber President, Text Box: Jack Miller and the Treasurer, Albert Gatton, gave short updates on chamber business, the other business and county participants provided valuable discussion on their current business status and future business activities.
Zoom have proven to be a valuable communication resource and a clear indication of the new way of doing business.  We will not only continue doing Zoom Public Chamber meetings, but also planning various special guest speakers with online Zoom mixers and webinars.
