General Meetings continue to be held virtually on Zoom. While there are several benefits to using this platform, there can be some obstacles…from connectivity issues to managing the variety and capacity of devices members use. Therefore, to ensure that our meeting runs smoothly, please adhere to the timeline for presenters,  so that we all enjoy a quality meeting experience.

1. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Members are encouraged to sign in early to socialize and to make sure computer/tablet/phone devices are connecting well before the meeting starts. 

2. Technical Support: 6:30 – 6:50 pm. If you have a Zoom question or concern, call the Tech Team. First, put you audio on mute, then call Tella or Terry to assist you privately before the meeting starts.

        Technical Support Team: 

           Tella & Terry : please see membership list for phone #                            

3. Formal Meeting starts at 7:00 pm. 


a) Mute your audio to drown out background noises (TV, dog       barking, etc.) 

b) Mute audio and turn off your video during guest speaker presentations (you’ll still be able to see the presenter…and their slides, etc.). 

c) If your internet is unstable or you lose your connection, try using the meeting invitation link to get back in. A meeting co-host will admit you at any time during the meeting.
