Here are some tips to help us have a successful Zoom event:
1. If you’ve not previously used Zoom, we recommend you download and create an account before the event and become comfortable with some of the features such as – how to mute/unmute your microphone, review your background or consider using a virtual background.
While Fancy Friday attire is not required, this might be the time to polish off a nice sweater or blouse, do the best you can to tame your COVID hair and find that great shade of lipstick that you used to wear before face masks. 😉 Pour yourself a nice beverage and settle in front of your computer, tablet or smart phone for our event.
Remember, if you have to step away or there’s lots of background noise, please be considerate and mute your line and/or stop video. You may also want to learn how to switch between gallery and speaker view as we will be asking you to switch modes during our presentation.
2. For our conversation to remain pleasant for everyone – please refrain from gossip about others and allow only those who wish to share their feelings or experiences to do so themselves; no politics or slamming our governor, president, etc. however you may share how the policies have impacted your life and family personally.
Be considerate and allow others to share but also maintain the confidences of others…. What happens at GPWA, stays at GPWA. 😉
