|IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING THE UPCOMING SEASON AND COVID-19:
CFWS members are a number one priority and their safety takes precedence over in person meetings. The Board of Directors has decided to suspend meetings at the Altamonte Chapel, through the end of December 2020. A decision will be made regarding meetings and activities in 2021 as we get closer to that time and an informed decision can be made. Our decision to suspend meetings and what will be decided for 2021 has and will greatly depend upon State and Local Medical Expert guidelines.
Of equal importance is the continuation of our mission to promote and support watercolor painting and our membership. Your board continues to explore ways for the membership to continue to share using technology and alternative means during this health crisis.
We have decided to try using the ZOOM application for online meetings this fall. Hopefully, many of you have attended a ZOOM meeting and are familiar with it.
ZOOM is a web-based video conferencing tool that allows users to meet online, with or without >video on your device: smart phone, IPad, laptop or computer. Understanding that ZOOM may be new to our members, we are providing simple, yet precise instructions on “How to ZOOM!” And, you can learn more about this at ZOOM.us.
HOW TO ZOOM A CFWS MEETING:
First, look for an emailed invitation. The email will contain the logon information for the ZOOM meeting.
Second, get the ZOOM app and give it a try. Before joining a ZOOM meeting on a computer or mobile device, you must download the ZOOM application from the app store. Otherwise, you will be prompted to download and install the ZOOM app when you click the join link that will be provided in an email before the meeting start.
