Did a search and found that the last identifiable thread on this topic is 4 years old, so essentially repeating an earlier question although with different parameters. I apologize in advance for the lengthy post, but am trying to give enough background to allow any respondents to know exactly what I'm looking for!
I am on the board of a not-for-profit, 100% volunteer organization. We are required to have two board meetings per year. One is held at our annual convention, so no problem. The other, though, has no other purpose to bring us all together. Board members can be scattered across five states, three provinces, and two territories, meaning it's not practical to travel for a 2-hour meeting.
I took on the task of looking for some online meeting software that would suit our needs. Since we only need it once a year, we're certainly not interested in a service with a monthly subscription fee. We're not averse to paying a reasonable fee for the meeting, but the key word is "reasonable."
We could have 25-30 people involved, using Windows, Apple, and even Linux operating systems. The visual capability is nice but not essential; a voice hookup is mandatory. We need to remember, though, that these are individuals calling in, so asking them to pay for their calls is something to avoid (I know I wouldn't appreciate a 2-hour call on my cell phone!).
I've done some looking at various services, but the ones that look the most promising on the surface either (a) have a much-too-small participant limit, or (b) don't really give any information until you register on the site, something I'm not going to do without more information. Vicious cycle!
Anyway, after all that the question is: can anyone tell me about their experiences with various online meeting services?
