Videoconferencing enables face-to-face regional conversations from the comfort of our offices.
The CFN uses Zoom videoconferencing technology to dig in deeper on webinar topics, explore policy tactics, & host work groups & other meetings. Videoconferencing is virtual, easy to use, inexpensive, & provides a degree of connection & authenticity that is hard to achieve without meeting in-person. As with webinars, it also allows people to attend who cannot afford to travel for an in-person gathering. We also like that we are lowering our carbon footprint by reducing the amount of time we spend in our cars. We know that nothing can replace connecting with someone in person, but we find this to be an excellent communication tool to enhance our connectivity across the entire Chesapeake foodshed.

“Although initially a bit startling [to be on video], I found the Zoom format to be a great forum for discussion. I liked that we could hold a breakout session within the session.”
