Members of the Royal College of Organists are invited to register for a free online Meet the President event.
This webinar-style event is exclusively for RCO Members, and will run from 15:00 to 16:00 on Saturday 17th March using online technology specially selected to make participation as easy as possible for first-time users – it really is as simple as opening a web page.
As well as short presentations from College President Martin Baker and Director Philip Meaden, the event will feature a Q&A session with participants invited to submit questions before or during the event.
This event has been organised to let members hear about the College’s work and plans for the future directly from our President, Martin Baker, and to have their questions answered.
Whether you want to ask about examinations, the library, iRCO and digital services, accreditation and professional development, partnerships, regional programmes or anything else, taking part in this event is quick, simple and free.
HOW TO TAKE PART
The format of this event has been designed to make it as easy as possible for anyone with a computer to take part. See the following questions and answers for more information.
How do I register?
Registration for this event is available to all College members and is entirely free. Simply click the registration link below and fill in the short form on the registration page. You will then receive by email all the information you need to take part.
How do I submit a question?
There are three ways to ask a question. You can include a question in your registration form, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org (including Meet the President in the subject line) at any time up to 5pm on Friday 2nd March, or you can submit your question during the event itself.
Why do you need my contact details?
The registration process collects some basic contact details so we can send you the information you need to take part. But your participation in the event itself will be entirely anonymous. Your name will not be shared with other participants, no one will be able to see or hear you during the event, and questions during the event are submitted anonymously by a special text messaging box.
What technology do I need to take part?
We have chosen to use Workcast software for our event because we believe it is the simplest and easiest system to use. All you need to take part is an email address and a computer with an internet connect and sound (ideally a desktop or laptop computer, but a tablet or even smartphone should work). No microphone or webcam will be used or required. The whole event will take place within your internet browser (Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox or similar) so no special software or downloads are required. For complete reassurance you can check when you sign up that your technology is fully compatible.
How do I join the event?
We will send you joining instructions with a link by email in the run up to the event – you will then receive several reminders to help you be in position and logged in for 3pm.
Any more questions? Simply email email@example.com including the words 'Meet the President' in the subject line and we’ll try to help.
