Seneca Nation’s first virtual Council session

On Saturday, May 9, the Seneca Nation held the first virtual regular Council session via the GoToMeeting platform. This allowed for safely maintaining social distancing, while providing secure access to Senecas who wanted to participate.

Councillors and Executives video conferenced from the Council chambers on their respective territories and 156 members logged in, some from as far away as Oklahoma and California. Everything worked well and members were able to have their questions and concerns addressed.

This will be the format for regular monthly Council sessions until it is safe to lift social distancing practices.
