We're still researching the availability of various conferencing tools
that may be available to us at ED. If someone is remotely conferenced
in, we MIGHT be able to use this "hand raising technology" through the
one internet connection we'll have. I'm not sure what we will have. In
the alternative, we'll have to go over a method with the on-line callers
to make sure that they are heard in their turn.
Re: the wireless connectivity access option. I'm not sure that is
something we can provide, even if we were to pay for it. Again, this is
something we'll have to research further.
Bottom line: we'll have a meeting that is as accessible and
participatory as possible, given what we have to work with. ["You take
the space you have, not the space you wish you had." :-)]
