Tips for Operating your Student Organization in a Virtual World (Adapted from VT)


Take advantage of tools like Zoom or Google Hangout for group meetings to discuss ongoing projects, and to offer more random opportunities to connect through discussions of less practical topics like your favorite snack or best show to binge-watch. You also might consider doing more developmental activities, like talking about your strengths or practicing your personal elevator pitches together.


Offer virtual meetings at times that closely mimic your regular schedule, depending on leader and member availability. Having a sense of routine can be helpful when people feel like life has been disrupted in a major way. If you would typically recognize graduating students or do an end of year debrief, find ways to still complete these functions.


Try to find ways to offer pre-planned events in an online format, like having a guest speaker share remarks during a Zoom call or having a showcase with individual performances on a Facebook Live stream. If you typically do service or community outreach, find ways to do more educational activities around the groups you serve or facilitate virtual fundraising events to support community organizations. Other creative ideas include:

Zoom Tips (Adapted from American University)

  • A few things to keep in mind to ensure you and your members have a safe, positive experience:
    • You can host up to 300 participants in your meeting or event
    • If you schedule an event and are hoping for selective participation, configure some of the privacy settings in Zoom, such as:
      • Requiring registration
      • Enable Waiting Room
    • Both phone or computer audio are an option, however you can force one or the other when setting up your meeting
    • If you are hosting an event, you may want to enable the option to mute participants on entry when setting up your meeting
  • General and E-Board Meetings tips:
    • Keep meetings short. Zoom fatigue is real. It is important to not meet to meet. We all have online classes, study groups, and Zoom parties to get use to. Make your meetings short, simple and fun. 
      • Tips on a well-run meetings:
        1. Plan out the meeting before time. Know what you are going to say and do before you enter the meetings. 
        2. Send out a brief agenda so everyone can come prepared to contribute. 
        3. Create a document or PowerPoint and share your screen. Research shows people lose interest faster when they are just staring at faces in boxes. Try presenting the meeting rather than just speaking to your members. Add your club logo to make it official! 
        4. Add more voices. Change it up. Make sure other E-Board and members are able to speak. 
        5. Don't meet to meet. Create a group chat on any platform to communicate meetings have been cancelled. And don't underestimate "paper" or email meetings, they can be just as effective if there isn't much to share.
