COVID-19 ALTERNATIVE MEETINGS

Until further notice, we will hold our meetings with ZOOM, an app made for video conferencing. Following is the process:

First, if you don't yet have the link to Zoom, send an email to smcccONENINENINEEIGHT(at)gmail.com (replace the uppercase portion with the 4-digit number it represents, and (at) with the @ sign), to request a link to our Zoom account. We'll answer your email as soon as possible. Click on the link. If you haven't used Zoom before you will be taken to a site where you can download software. The meeting should then pop open. Meetings will begin at 7:00. I suggest that you join the meeting a few minutes early.

When the zoom window opens on your PC there should be a control bar for zoom on the lower edge of the screen, in the left corner is a picture of a microphone, if you click on that you can mute your microphone. Please mute yourself as with a number of people on line there could be significant noise. Obviously if you have a question or comment you can unmute to speak. Please be polite when trying to speak as it is pretty easy for us to talk over one another and that doesn't work as well online as it does in a face to face meeting.
