Live Streaming for Faculty Association Meetings

Questioner: Anonymous

Posted to: David Fenner, Faculty Association President

Will the Faculty Association be live streaming their meetings? Many faculty cannot attend meetings due to class and other obligations. With newer technology, it doesn’t require much effort and it is not costly. The faculty union live streamed all of their negotiation sessions this past year. Doing so enabled faculty who could not attend sessions to watch. The sessions are also archived on the faculty union website for later viewing by faculty and others. This is common practice at other institutions.

Response from the Floor by FA President Fenner

The FA will explore live-streaming meetings. The Association is working towards identifying a means to vote anonymously. There was hope to preview electronic voting earlier, but a more cost effective system is being explored.
