IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING THIS SEASON AND COVID-19:

CFWS members are a number one priority and their safety takes precedence over in person meetings. Our decision to suspend meetings for 2021 has greatly depended upon State and Local Medical Expert guidelines. We have decided to use the ZOOM application for online meetings. 
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.

You can  join a test meeting  at zoom.us/test.  There are youtube demos for beginners such as: https://www.youtube.com/watchv=9isp3qPeQ0E.
