New to Zoom? Get the app now and be ready when your first meeting starts: TRY Zoom This will also enable you to experience the platform and become more comfortable with it ahead of time. You will have a better experience using the app rather than tuning in via the web.
Zoom can be accessed via computer, tablet or smart mobile phone (audio and video) or via phone (audio only). All details will be sent ahead of time via email so I suggest you register well ahead of the day.
If you have a very slow computer or internet connection, listening without video requires much less resource.
Participants may chat before and after the presentations (the line will be open from 7pm) will be muted during the presentation and can ask questions via the chat box. Questions will be handled at the end of the talk (time permitting).
The QFA Library is open on meeting nights when we have access to our venue. Members may borrow any time from the QFA virtual library at no charge, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange borrowing.
Our evening speakers and workshops are usually recorded, if you register and pay you will receive a video recording of the session to download whether or not you attend live. Meeting recordings are available for members from the library or for purchase in mp3 audio format and more recently also in mp4 video format for $10 members, $15 non-members, workshops $25 members and $35 non-members.
