Club Elections

Here are the officers we had this past year.  All are willing to step up again but Vince and Diane would like a break if anyone is interested in helping out.  I think any of us would step aside if someone else would like to throw their hat in the ring for any position.  None of the jobs involve much time and we are all willing to get you up to speed and help out if needed.  We would love to have more members get involved.  Please let us know if you'd like to help our club as one of these officers.

More about Zoom…..

Zoom works on just about any device but it will work best on a laptop or desktop because the screen size allows you to see more participants. You don't need a camera but it's nice to have so other members can see you. You will need a microphone, but almost every laptop has a microphone built-in. Headsets also work well.

From the Download Center - Zoom install the ‘Zoom Client for Meetings’ for your computer. There are also ‘Zoom Mobile Apps’. 

One Minute Video instructions:

Zoom also has a "test meeting" running continuously so you can see if it's working:

I’ve participated in Zoom meetings and have discovered that it's the ‘mute’ feature that makes it work - 40 people can’t talk at the same time and some are effected by feedback that’s not apparent to the person creating it.  It is best to mute yourself (and the host can also mute participants). If you’ve been recognized to speak don’t forget to unmute yourself!
