New to Video Conferencing?

If video conferencing technology is new to you, we recommend that you spend a little time installing Zoom and getting it to work. Useful info on installing and operating Zoom on Windows and Macs can be found here.

We are also holding a dry run on April 14 at 6pm. If you would like to join as a participant just to make sure that you can “Zoom”, please join us by registering here. This link only registers you for the dry run, not the chapter meeting.

On April 16, we will spend the first fifteen minutes helping people log in. If you register but cannot get Zoom to work the day of the meeting, email Bud Roth at and he will help.
