The responses to our proposing to host an on-line support group meeting have been very positive. We've decided to set up a Zoom video conference for the May 31st get-together, starting at 2:00pm EDT.
The meeting will be by invitation only and password protected to maintain support group privacy. You can request an invitation by clicking here and sending the pop-up email.
About a week before the meeting you will receive your invitation. It will contain Zoom connection information so please make sure you don't delete it. Zoom can use your web browser if you do not have the Zoom client or app installed on your device.
Invitations are keyed to each requester so please do not share yours with anyone. If you know someone who could benefit from the group, please forward this announcement to them so they can request their own invitation. We can provide connection info just before and during the meeting, but we prefer that everyone register in advance.
Please make sure your webcam, speakers, and microphone are working before the meeting starts. You can still participate if you don't have a webcam, but one of the enjoyable features of a video conference is chatting face to face. Remember that some webcams have a wide field of view, so make sure you're wearing <appropriate> attire.
We are really looking forward to trying out a Big Apple NETS virtual support group meeting. We see a lot of potential and expanded participation when social separation is no longer a consideration. Looking towards the future we anticipate having hybrid meetings once the separation rules are relaxed.
Thank you for all the feedback we received. If you have any questions or comments please send them by reply to this email. In the meantime, please stay safe and be mindful of COVID-19 transmission preventative measures.
