Some workshops are being offered through Zoom, a free online meeting software. You can attend the workshops by computer or by phone. Click here to download Zoom to your computer now, or you also have the option to run Zoom through your Internet browser just prior to the start of the workshop. If you would prefer to run the meeting through your browser, simply click on the link of the webinar you want to attend below, a few minutes before the meeting starts.

If you have never used Zoom before, we recommend that you log on 10-15 minutes ahead of the session you want to attend to give yourself time to work through any technical issues. The Zoom website has lots of resources available to help you get started or troubleshoot common problems.

You can also check out our easy-to-use Zoom guide for groups for some instructions!
