Greetings Society Family,

You are invited to a Zoom Roundtable discussion on COVID-19.

When: Apr 1, 2020 07:30 PM

You must register in advance for this meeting by clicking on the following link: 

You will be asked to input your name and email address. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar either by your computer or phone.

This information has been sent to your Agricultural Societies.  We ask that you please share this information to any directors on your Agricultural Society that would like to attend.  We can accommodate up to 500 people.

IMPORTANT: Click here for more specific information on the various methods of accessing Zoom – computer, smartphone, landline, and other information such as how to participate in the discussion or ask questions, etc. This document was included in the email that was sent to the Agricultural Societies.

NOTE: If you haven’t used Zoom before, I suggest you start the process of logging in 10 to 15 minutes before the call starts to allow time for the app to download to your computer or smartphone.

Important points:

We are hopeful that a number of participants will participate and share information on how how the COVID-19 is affecting your AGricultural Society and how you are dealing with it , but if you are more comfortable just listening and observing that is fine too.

When you log into the call you will be put on hold (in a Waiting Room) until the call starts.

All callers will be muted by the system.  If you wish to participate or ask a question, click on the ‘Raise Hand”  button or ‘Chat’ option -see attachment for more instructions.

We have not run a video-conference of this size before, so we ask for your patience if we run into any glitches – it is a learning experience for everyone.

I would ask that you please read the instructions thoroughly before contacting me with any questions on how to use Zoom.
