EMSB COUNCIL MEETINGS TO BE BROADCAST LIVE ON THE WEB

Repercussion Theatre

PRESS RELEASE

 

MONTREAL, MAY 25, 2009- The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) will begin broadcasting its monthly Council of Commissioners meetings live via its website beginning Wednesday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. Viewers will only need to log on to www.emsb.qc.ca and click on the page one link. The site will  also include archival coverage of previous meetings. As part of a pilot project, the April 29, 2009 meeting was taped and is now online.

“This is just another way for us to become more transparent,” said EMSB Chairman Angela Mancini.  “There are a lot of people, particularly parents  and staff in our system, who can’t always attend our meetings. Parents have babysitting issues and some people do live far from the EMSB Administration Building in N.D.G. where the meetings occur. Now they will be able to watch the proceedings from the comfort of their own homes and if they cannot do so live, we will archive the meetings so they can do so at their convenience.”
