The Equity Online Branch

05 July 2015 | Currently Serving Moderator: Caron Jane Lyon

Welcome to The Equity Online Branch

This is the Online Branch. It lives! By the summer it should be live and then open as panto season arrives. This is the public page of the Online Branch. It is one page. The Branch itself is availible to the beta team. 

What is the Online Branch? It is an area within the Members Area that has all the rights and powers of a geographic branch but you can visit it at any time you like from your own home or anywhere you have access to a computer, iDevice and the Internet.

NOTE: Branch members have additional access permisions to enter the Online Branch which activates a left hand menu displaying funtions such at Motions, Debates and Voting. If you would like to consider joining the branch please contact the moderator with your name, and Equity No# (include your email address if you would like a response from the moderator) - Thanks, Caron

Who is a member of the Online Branch right now? There are 25 Equity Members in the direct testing team. 16 are on the working-party who are serving as the committee and 8 are Branch Members participating in the testing. Caron is currently serving a Moderator/Chair.

If you are interested in joining the EquityUK Online Branch contact the currently serving Moderator.

The Moderator

Hello, Caron here your new moderator, some of you know me, *waves* some may have heard of me *shakes hand*, some will have no idea *hi, nods - smiles warmly*. Not sure which is best! That is rhetoric by the way no answers on digital post cards thank you.

My priorities are as follows:

  • Establish communiation with members during this final phase of testing (DONE)

  • Ironing out the last few operational glitches with the assistance of the testing team
    (6 wk target preparing report back on July 2nd)

  • Presenting the Online Branch at the 2015 ARC (DONE)

What Caron would like from you (visiting right now) is your past experiences of attending traditional branches if you have. She would also like to hear what you'd like to see happen as the Online Branch evolves.
