In an effort to keep our constituents safe and healthy during the health emergency we are offering Zoom meetings. Let's face it. It just isn't safe for constituents to have someone speak to them face-to-face on their doorstep. Nor is it safe to gather in homes for meetings over cake and coffee.
What is a Zoom meeting?
Zoom uses our computers and phones to let us attend a meeting from the safety and comfort of our own home. We can talk to each other and even see each other, if we choose.
Is it hard or confusing?
Zoom meetings can be as simple as a phone call. For those who want more, they can download the Zoom app to their phone, tablet, or computer. With the Zoom app, they can use their device camera to allow others to see them. Of course, they can turn the camera on and off, and even just chat by voice if they are feeling camera shy. Many people who work from home are using Zoom meetings to keep up with their colleagues. Teachers are using Zoom for distance learning with their students. We're even using Zoom meetings at the state capitol for meetings with the Governor and with colleagues.
What do I have to do?
It's simple. There are just 4 steps.
- Provide a list of friends and neighbors to invite to your Zoom meeting.
(Be sure to include their contact info.)
- Inform them you've put them on your list and that we will contact them.
(We will provide a meeting code.)
- Encourage them to attend the Zoom meeting and to bring their questions.
- Remind them on the day of your Zoom meeting and confirm they will attend.
*5. Optional: Suggest they provide their own snacks and beverage!
