When you register for an event that is being delivered via Zoom, we will collect your name, telephone number, and email address. (It is important that we have both telephone number and email address – that way we have a way to contact you if we haven’t been able to send you the proper information.) We will send you:
- A link to the Zoom event. This will include a link that will take you directly to a webpage. If you haven’t already installed the Zoom software, follow the prompts. Your electronic device will prompt you through all the steps.
- A login number for the Zoom meeting, and a password for that meeting. You will need these to log in.
- In the event that you aren’t able to log in using Zoom, a telephone number will be provided. You can call this number, and enter the login number and password. (Described in #2.) The session will work like an old-school teleconference call. We’ll miss seeing your smiling face – but will be happy that you will be able to participate!
We suggest that you start your login process about 15 minutes in advance of the meeting. That way you’ll be able to work through the steps and manage any hurdles you encounter.
It’s important to know that Zoom is new to all of us. Don’t worry about showing up a little late. Don’t worry if figuring out the technology takes a little longer than you expected. We’ve all been there, and we know what you’re going through. We will completely understand late arrivals.
Also – it’s important to remember that we’ve all been figuring out how to show up during a pandemic. We all understand messed-up hair and questionable outfits. So long as we can see your smiling face, we can all feel like we’re doing the best we can to remain a community and participate in everything we can. <3
