How to Install and Use Zoom

Zoom is a reliable cloud platform for video, voice, and content sharing that runs across mobile devices, computers, and telephones.  Zoom helps businesses and organizations bring their teams and members together in a virtual environment to get more done.

  • If you have questions for the presenter during the event, click the “Chat” button at the bottom of your screen to send your questions to the host.  There will be a Q&A at the end of the meeting.
Suggestions for attending a Zoom meeting:
  • It is better to attend a meeting with a computer, tablet, or phone that has a camera and microphone.
  • It is better to attend a meeting through WIFI.
  • If the meeting audio is not acceptable through your device, please exit the audio through your device and call into the meeting audio with a phone call.

We hope to see you all in our virtual meetings!
