Getting Started with Zoom

Starting in the New Year, we will begin experimenting with Zoom-based remote meetings to allow us to restart our monthly meetings. These will be conducted online for as long as we are prevented from meeting in person.

For those unfamiliar with Zoom, the following links will be useful to orient you to the procedures in advance of your first session. Don’t panic! It is very straighforward!

All of these links will open in new windows so you will still have access to this page.

You will recieve information on this if we hold your email address in the membership database. The form below will permit you to register for the trial session and all subsequent ones.
