I agree with the mic muting.  That has been my plan all along.  In fact, I have the meeting setup so that everyone’s mic is muted when they log in.  They can unmute if they have something to say – but I can re-mute everyone at any time.

I plan to keep the chatter down except for who is talking at the moment – president, secretary, treasurer’s report, AMA minute, etc.

People can use the chat window to post comments/questions without causing interruptions.

It seems like during the actual meeting, the Pres should mute all of the microphones so we don't heave everyone talking over him and each other.  Folks can raise their hand if they want to add something.

We've been having bandwidth problems, so my wife had disabled both the camera and the microphone on my machine trying to eliminate the problem.  I'm back to full strength now!

Scroll to the bottom of this email for the invitation details.

We will be holding the May meeting online.  It will be at the normal date and time, May 5, 2020, at 7:30 PM.  I will send out the meeting invitation a little later in the week.

If you have used Zoom before, you are already set to go.  This will work on a computer or tablet/smartphone

If you haven’t, here are a couple of videos to show you how.
There are a ton of other helpful videos out there if you search.

A few recommendations:
It helps if you use headphones or ear-buds for the audio.  If you don’t have them, it is still okay.
Mute your microphone (in the zoom app) when you are just listening and don’t need to talk.
Test your audio and video with the zoom app when joining.

I have set up a practice meeting so that anyone that wants to try it out ahead of time can give it a go.  That will be at 5:30 PM Wednesday (4/29).

Here is the invitation to the practice meeting if you’d like to give it a test run:
