Chapter ZOOM Meetings
Chapters are encouraged to use SCI’s ZOOM account to conduct chapter meetings during this time of social distancing and meeting restrictions due to COVID-19.
What is Zoom? ZOOM is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to meet online with other participants – either by video, audio, or both, all while conducting live chats. Particpants may join a ZOOM meeting using a desktop computer, a tablet, a smart phone, or a landline phone. If your device has a camera, at your option you can be seen (and heard) in real time by the other participants (see illustration). ZOOM also allows PowerPoint presentations or videos – anything you can display on your device – to be shared with the group.
I’m ready to go, just give me the meeting login credentials!
Not so fast, tell me more about how to use ZOOM.
To schedule a ZOOM meeting, or for additional information, contact either
- Joann Ellis (920-319-6694, firstname.lastname@example.org) or
- Celia Clark (936-828-6539, email@example.com).
Please login to meetings 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. This will give you the opportunity to resolve any connectivity or login problems as well as greet other attendees before the start of the meeting.
Please mute your microphone unless you intend to speak to the group. A cough, a dog bark, a spontaneous exclamation (“Damn, I spilled my beer!”) or any background noise which is picked up by your mic will interrupt the speaker and be heard by everyone!
