What your board members (and staff) get from webinars
A webinar is an online seminar. They last an hour and are interactive, people can ask questions of the presenter and other attendees.
BDAs approximately 30-35 webinars throughout the year are designed specifically for housing association board members
For board members who have a need and interest in learning more about a specific topic, relevant to their board role within a limited amount of time and without having to leave their office, webinars are ideal. They are:
- Easy to set up and easy to join.
- No specialist software is needed you just need a laptop/computer/tablet /iphone with internet access and a good headset or access to a phone
- Value for money - annual subscriptions for your everyone in your organisation (board staff and involved tenants) is only £500.00 (for HAs with more than 1000 units) or £100.00 (HA's under 1000 unit) plus VAT. You can also pay for one Webinar at a time for £25 plus VAT
Attendees can see the slides of the presentation and hear the voice of the host live, and other attendees without moving from their desk! They can also ask questions, either by typing them or asking them verbally.
To join you are sent a link to the webinar on Monday before the session
The session is recorded – this enables the presentation with commentary to be viewed and listened to by any board member who could not attend.
