UILI embraces Skype for Governing Board meeting

Last october at the Governing Board meeting held in Paris France the board decided in an effort to reduce meeting expenses and travelling costs that one of the two biannual Governing Board meetings would be replaced by a meeting using Skype. After a preparation commitee tested and evaluated the idea a first Governing Board meeting was held on april 14, 2012. On this friday at 08.00h in Canada, 14.00h in Europe and 21.00h in Japan a first succesfull board meeting was held. After two hours the president closed the meeting to reconvene on may 16, 2012 to finalize our first board meeting on Skype. All the members attending concluded that this is a most efficient way to meet.
