By Chris Crutchfield, AgGateway Member Services
As you know, AgGateway has made several changes in 2020 to enable quick, efficient work while taking some of the administrative burden off our member volunteers. One such administrative task is scheduling and kicking off AgGateway conference calls. These include committee, working group and task force calls, as well as “Meet-Ups” to discuss new pain points or ideas.
Our new assistant Kimberly Chauche (see article this issue) and Member Services have already begun reaching out to team leaders to confirm meeting schedules and participants, and to schedule conference calls. We’re scheduling all meetings through the Go-To Meeting service. If you have not yet been contacted but need to schedule a meeting, please contact Member Services at Member.Services@AgGateway.org and provide the following information:
As noted above, Member Services will schedule the meeting, send invitations and update a centrally available meeting calendar. Member Services will launch the scheduled meeting, ensure anti-trust guidelines are addressed on the call, then hand over control to the meeting leader and drop off the call.
Meeting minutes will continue to be the responsibility of the meeting leader or another member of the group as designated. Member Services will follow up to ensure meeting minutes are subsequently posted to the AgGateway wiki. Member Services will also be happy to help you create and add your agenda to the wiki if needed.
We hope that this new service will lift some of the administrative burden from your AgGateway experience and allow you more time to focus on contributing ideas and implementing solutions that benefit your organization and the industry.
We look forward to working with you in 2020!
