VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT ZOOM MEETINGS:
To prevent “ZOOM bombing,” ZOOM requires that the host admit each participant to the meeting. From 6:45 to 7:00 pm, I admit participants, but once the talk begins at 7:00, the speaker becomes the host and it becomes difficult for them to monitor the room so that latecomers can be admitted. I am sorry for members who were not able to join Bill Woodward’s talk, but request that if you want to attend the meeting, please join by 7:00 pm. Thanks! (P.S. I’m open to suggestions on how we can solve this problem as I realize that sometimes folks cannot join by 7:00.)

Our Mission Statement
