OMAHA, Neb. — As efforts to contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus by restricting travel ripple across the country, Methods for Management (MfM), the international consulting group, says it is opting to move meetings online as an alternative to canceling them.
“Using video conferencing platforms like Zoom, members can connect to their scheduled meetings from any location and interact with one another in the same way a person-to-person meeting would work,” says MfM.
“The agenda and format of the meeting,” the group adds, “can remain relatively the same as a typical on-location meeting would work.”
In addition to the Q2 scheduled meetings, the group reports, it is also having weekly all-member Zoom meetings, where concerns and strategies regarding navigating through COVID-19 can be discussed and shared between members.
“To date,” MfM shares, “eight group meetings have successfully been completed, with a fantastic number of members participating.”
The group relates that it will continue to, “Remain in close contact with our members and will seek out more creative ways to stay connected, informed, and up-to-date daily.”
This group, facilitated by Kermit Engh, says it will, “Provide membership to elite dry cleaners who wish to further their expertise and improve their business through shared industry knowledge, local community action, higher productivity, efficiency, and training for excel in garment care and customer service.”
Engh has been an owner/operator in the drycleaning industry for over 28 years, a member of MfM for more than 24 years, and the president of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists for 17 years, among other achievements, the group notes.
