Senior Techies SIG
Virtual Meeting
Wednesday, April 8, 2020, 2:304:00 pm
Use the virtual meeting procedure outlined below:

As you are aware, we cannot have our SIG meeting this month at the regular location. But, that doesn’t mean that we cannot try to have a virtual meeting. Your SenCom Board has been working on setting up virtual meetings for SenCom to maintain contact with as many members as possible. I am inviting you to join the Senior Techies SIG on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, at 2:30 pm.
We are doing our testing with an app called Free Conference Call that you can download from the Google Play Store. I have included a set of instructions that you can print and follow to join the meeting. I will set up my computer at 2:15 pm so that you may begin to join at that time. This app allows me to see you, talk to you, show you the screen of my computer, and try to answer your questions. This may be our reality for the foreseeable future.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. If you have any questions that we can answer on Wednesday, send them to me as soon as possible to allow me to do my research before the meeting.

Apple iPad/iPhone users can find the same app on the Apple App Store. Installing and using it should be very similar to the Android instructions above.

You can also use your computer, if you would prefer, to conference into the meeting. Most laptop computers have a camera and microphone which will allow you to be seen and heard. I will be happy to try to answer any questions you may have about these instructions. Although it mentions that Chrome is the preferred browser, we know that others have used Firefox without any problems.

The Senior Techies are a small group of Senior Citizens who desire to improve their computer skills and to help others who have little knowledge of computer basics. SenCom members that seek to discuss computer and/or technology issues in a smaller group setting are encouraged to attend. The Senior Techies SIG always meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

Joe Callison convenes the Senior Techies SIG.
Call (913) 229-4684 if you have any questions.
