Posted on Behalf of the Philanos Board

On the recent Philanos COVID call, it was clear that many affiliates are struggling with how to hold their big grant announcement, Town Hall, Annual Meeting or other large events. We’ve done a bit of research, with a view toward trying to provide solutions. We learned a lot, so we thought we would share that information and offer links to some resources.
As a caveat, you should realize that the general rule of thumb regarding security and conferencing/meeting apps is that you get what you pay for. Free versions of any company’s virtual meetings have fewer security features. Once you buy a version, however, you are getting much better security, and end-to-end encryption of your meeting. While we are not endorsing any platform, these are worth your consideration. Most are offering free versions of their paid levels for an initial period of time.
We hope this helps. It’s not everything, but it’s a good start.
