The Internet is a strong competitor to orchid societies and it has a clearly contributed to the declining amount of members. It’s time to fight back with the same weapon. In the Finnish Orchid Society we organise member meetings generally only in Helsinki. It means that most of the members cannot participate the meetings personally. For many years, we have video taped the most interesting lectures. These can be watched on our website. As the communication techniques have advanced, we have now headed to Zoom-meetings, where the members can participate by texting comments and questions to the performers. This also allows the lecturer or the host of the meeting to locate physically anywhere in the reach of the Internet. Please, comment what kind of experiences and practises you have in your organisation.
