You may remember that for the Auction Fund-A-Need last November, our members and friends contributed to a virtual conference room equipment package. After careful due diligence, over the past months E-201 was fitted with dual screens, a camera, computer, speaker system and a dedicated Zoom account. Now, anyone can join a meeting in E201 with video and/or audio to participate without having to be physically present. This technology is in alignment with our goals for membership growth and inclusivity. Folks who previously couldn’t participate in groups because of kids, travel, traffic, etc., now have a new option- they can Zoom in from any smart device or call in from any phone. The staff has been trained on the equipment so they can set it up and make sure it’s working. Written instructions are also kept with the equipment, just in case.
You can now request the room using the Internal Group Room Request Form, selecting “Conference Room (E-201)” and make sure in the Setup Needs box you mention if you want to have a conference call or video conference (or both).
