Virtual Meetings

The preferred method for virtual meeting attendance, and the method used by the Board of Directors, is Google+ Hangouts. If you plan to attend virtually, let the meeting organizer know, because the organizer will have to establish the video chat.

If you plan to use your tablet or smartphone to connect, get the Hangouts app from the appropriate app store and log in with a GMail address. If you plan to use a laptop or desktop computer, visit the Hangouts web page ahead of time and make sure your camera and microphone work.

The organizer should set up the Hangout session 15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting, add those invitees with GMail addresses directly to the Hangout, and then copy the Hangout URL and e-mail it to all virtual participants.

Those receiving invitations can connect through the tablet or smartphone app, or by following the link in most web browers.
