Hi Ben

We had a virtual meeting for our kick off as in-person was not possible due
to the team's varying schedules. I put together a very detailed agenda that
introduced team members, set expectations for roles for the year, covered
talking points on which we could make decisions that will impact our work
on during the year (including content covered in the CAA), and covered my
goals for the group for the year. I set up the meeting with Adobe Connect
but found that I couldn't share my screen. We ended up having a blend of
meeting types where I shared my screen via another tool and used Adobe
Connect for audio.

My biggest issue for a virtual or combined event (in-person and webinar) is
having a tool that gives audio and visual access while also supporting up
to 12 people on a call. Free tools like Skype can't do this, and Adobe
Connect doesn't seem to have the features I need.

Please let me know if I can provide further details or help in any other
way with this discussion.
