Virtual Event Suggestions

During these strange times our events calendar is looking sparse. We can all be creative and come up with some ideas/events that we can host online. Most people have had some experience of Zoom - which allows us 40 minutes for an online meeting. If anybody needs longer there is an option to use a paid for version - speak to a committee member to find out how.
