Welcome

UPCOMING MEETINGS

Come to our September 19th meeting virtually!

Our speaker will be Jennifer DeBruin speaking on “Discovering the Humanity in History”. 

All you need to attend the meeting is a computer/tablet/smartphone or even a regular wired landline phone (although if you use the last choice, you will get only audio and not get to see the speaker’s powerpoint presentation). You need to have speakers attached to your computer, but you do not need to have a microphone or webcam; in fact, we will ask that you mute your mic and camera so that we do not place a strain on the allotted bandwidth.

You must register in advance using the link below. You will then receive an email confirmation with further information and the link to click on the 18th before 10 am. We suggest that you check in a bit before that, particularly if you do not yet have Zoom (free app) installed on your computer or device. The first time you go to use it, you will be prompted to download Zoom, which only takes a minute to do and it’s a one-time install: you don’t have to do it again.

You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
When: September 19, 2020 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Register in advance for this meeting:
Check back later in August for the upcoming Zoom link.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting on the 20th.
