In light of the national and local recommendations for non-essential gatherings, in-person VMC Club meetings at Reno-Stead Airport Freedom Terminal are cancelled at least for the near future. Join us for our next scheduled VMC Club meeting on May 4th.
As with our General and IMC Club meetings we have been using the Zoom Online meeting platform.
To attend the online meeting navigate your web browser to https://zoom.us/join. That will take you to a page where it you can insert the Chapter Meeting ID and password that you received in your meeting reminder email . Once signed in you will arrive in a ‘waiting room’ where the meeting host can then give you access to the meeting. You will be joined with both your computer microphone and camera turned off. You may activate you mike and.or camera at your discretion.
There is no requirement to download anything to your computer, though if you want to establish an account with them and download the Zoom app it is free. There are also meeting apps available for iOS and Android devices in their respective app stores – again free.
The meeting software will be turned on at 5 pm so that you can try it out before the meeting and get your computer system set up to participate. Just join the meeting as described above and try out the meeting controls that you see on your screen.
We also encourage all of you to become familiar with the CDC’s basic health precautions, which include:
- Washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or by using alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home if you have a fever or feel unwell.
Stay safe and healthy! Practice social distancing!
