Attend Tuesday's Meeting Online! Finally!!

 &

For the very first time we will be using ZOOM Cloud Meetings in order for participants to join an audio version of our Fall Quarterly Meeting via their computer, iPad, iPhone Android, or by phone. Zoom is simple and easy to use; I tested it on 3 platforms and found it very user friendly. Here are the steps to use Zoom to join Tuesday's meeting (10/21, 6:30-8:30 Pacific Time):
