Video Conferencing is a convenient way to conduct meetings. Unlike teleconferencing, video conferencing allows meeting participants to be viewed on a television screen in addition to viewing other participants at one meeting site or all the meeting sites listed below. Audio is included in the conference and there are no additional fees. The conference is transmitted in high definition and picture clarity is superb. Video conferencing reduces travel time and helps minimize mileage expenses. Video conferencing also gives meeting participants the ability to view documents, or connect to additional media and record meetings as needed.

The State Bar office in Albuquerque serves as the central video conference hub and remote site locations include Farmington, Las Cruces and Roswell. A site location in Santa Fe is now being coordinated. Participants can travel to a convenient site location or can opt to join via laptop or desktop computer. Individuals participating with a laptop or desktop will see the conference at a lower resolution. A small investment in a web cam is encouraged. A recommended choice is the LogicTech QuickPro 9000 model. A total of 24 computers can participate in a video conference with interaction by participants or 48 with viewing privileges only.

Video conferencing is available to State Bar Committees, Sections and Divisions at no charge. Attorney members and law firms will be charged a fee of $35 per hour per location for the use of equipment. A one-hour minimum is charged and billing will be in one-half hour increments. Court committees and court agencies will not be charged for use of video conference services. Room rates still apply and after hour fees may also be applicable.
