We have audio and video capabilities with Zoom – you can choose just to listen if you do not have web-cam capabilities.

If you are unsure about how to access Zoom – please email or call me – we can set up a time for a “mock” meeting, so you are comfortable with logging in. It is VERY user friendly, and if you have used any online meeting software, it is very easy to navigate.
