The society programme has now been expanded to include on line meetings and events.
For these virtual events, the society is using the Zoom web conferencing platform. Meeting attendees are not required to have an account nor is there any cost attached, but you will need access to the Zoom app.
It is recommended that you download to your desktop the Zoom Client for Meetings.
When you have downloaded it (Zoominstaller.exe), find it in your downloads folder and double click to install . The App will then appear as a shortcut on your desktop.
After Registering for the meeting of your choice, access it on the day by clicking on the link that appears in the confirmation email. It is personal to you at the address you have used to Register. This is the only way of gaining access to the meetings. Meeting ID numbers are not published for security reasons.
Meetings generally open 30 mins before the billed speaker time, but check for the specific meeting in the calendar on this website.
To download the Zoom app, go to the Zoom website here – https://zoom.us/download
As Zoom are always working on updates, it is a good idea to revisit the site from time to time and download the latest version.
If you have questions about how Zoom works you will find most answers on their website here – Zoom Support
Equipment required is a computer with monitor and speakers. A camera is not required nor is a microphone. Use the largest screen that you have. You could use a mobile phone at a pinch but with such a small screen you would not get best benefit.
Meetings will require pre-registration, lists generally opening 3 – 4 weeks before the meeting date. All registrants will be acknowledged, with a personal joining link being sent out within 24 hours.
When meetings are recorded (only when the presenter allows), personal information, images etc. are never shared with any 3rd party unless required by law, or to help us fulfill our obligations to our members in conducting this online meeting,
Do please follow the instructions for registration.
