The Committee received and noted the Annual Report of the Members IT Reference Group.
Members noted the adoption of Zoom which would enable Welsh translation during meetings. It is still early during its use, however officers are working to ensure that it works as required for the Council. It will not be rolled out to Members until the system works as required. Members expressed their concern about using two platforms (Microsoft Teams and Zoom) and the confusion this may cause. Officers agreed that it would need to be well established and there would be plenty of trial runs to ensure that everyone is comfortable using the platform before any switch is made.
Members raised the point that Zoom would also have to work within a hybrid situation, not just for remote users.
Members briefly raised the issue of using personal equipment to access Council accounts.
Resolved: That the report be noted
