Teleconferencing Tips



As we continue to shelter in place, teleconferencing and video conferencing have become the default medium for connecting with anyone outside our own homes: friends, family, teachers and our PTA community.

To help you navigate all the tools, programs, processes and platforms that allow us to connect “virtually,” let us guide you to some resources:

  • On the COVID-19 Resources for PTA Leaders page on the California State PTA website there are valuable sections on Teleconferencing Guidelines, Frequently Asked Questions for Meetings Via Teleconference, and a list of Teleconferencing and Video Conferencing Tools.
  • On April 2 we hosted a one-hour webinar titled “Tools and Best Practices for Virtual Meetings” where we discussed how to manage audio calls, teleconferences, and video conferences for maximum success and effectiveness during these challenging times. If you were not able to attend, you can watch a recording of the webinar by clicking here; alternatively you can download a copy of the presentation from the webinar by clicking here.
