Zoom conferencing

We use Zoom for both video and audio meetings. We love that it is stable on many platforms, and it offers us helpful facilitation tools, like in-call breakout-rooms!

Join a call

Joining is easy, the instructions are here and in the Zoom confirmation email and calendar entry you received when you registered.

Note: We no longer use our main room for Cocktails and Workshops, so you may need to register to get the correct Join details for your meeting.

New to  Zoom? Here’s how it works …

What you need to participate:

  • the Join link (and Meeting ID, if joining by phone) from your Zoom registration confirmation, calendar entry or invitation email.
  • a desktop computer, mobile device or phone
    • if using desktop:
      • the Zoom app – if you do not install it in advance, you’ll be prompted to do so upon first use, so be sure to allow 150 minutes for installation and soundcheck.
      • we recommend you bring a headset, in case things go wrong (to reduce feedback/noise/echo for others)
    • if using a smartphone or tablet:
      • install the free Zoom Cloud Meetings app for Android or iOS
    • if using a telephone:
      • choose a local conference dial-in number from the Zoom list. Note: these are regular phone numbers, NOT toll-free numbers. Your phone company should be able to tell you what a call will cost.
      • ability to produce normal touchtone sounds in order to join the conference. (Problems? Check the phone manual or ask your technical support provider how to turn touchtones on.)
      • some have asked: can you dial-in to of these numbers using Skype and other VOIP calling services? It sounds plausible – but please test this with us in advance. It has been known to decrease call quality for all participants.
