Type 1 Virtual BCC Meetings
Type 1 Meetings are facilitated, live streamed, broadcasted, and recorded by IT. Type 1 groups generally meet more frequently, have more legislative items, and have greater public participation.
If your meeting body has not met virtually yet, please complete the Initial Setup steps below.
The IT Media Team will send you the Online Meeting URL, Meeting Phone Number and Webinar ID, streaming information, and broadcast information from the IT Media Team.
The Clerk's Office will send you the Clerk’s meeting ID.
