News from Sherman Oberson
I hope this finds you all safe and sound. I’m sure most of you are sheltering in place and maybe going a bit stir crazy. We’re here to help. Our first virtual meeting went really well. I’ll hope you’ll join us at the next one, scheduled for Sunday, May 17, from 1pm to 4pm. We’re starting the meeting later so we can have lunch first.
Join us for our second virtual meeting using Zoom. Not familiar with zoom? It’s a video conferencing program/app that works on all platforms. It’s very easy to use. Our first meeting went so well that we’ve purchased the pro edition so the meeting can be as long as we like.
No formal demos are planned but we will have show-and-tell and socializing.
If you did not get the email with the meeting ID and password (information needed to join the meeting) leave a message with your email in the comment section to this post and we’ll get the information to you. You don’t have to be a guild member to attend, and there is no charge for the meeting.
To attend just click here around 12:55pm on Sunday and join the meeting. Or you can download the app (for computer, tablet or smart phone) at https://zoom.us/ and type in the meeting ID and password to join the meeting. Please check your video and audio on your computer beforehand so you will be ready to go.
