ZOOM Videoconferencing

The ABC has been working through some options to provide the members and the ABC committee to maintain communications thru this time while COVID-19 affects our daily lives. But this also can be used for direct personal video communication with your family and friends, and its  FREE. 

The committee will be the first to use these offering and confirm that the process and quality of the ”meeting space” is acceptable.

What YOU can DO ::

Once that group has been defined and the emails entered, we are then ready to test the system. 

Q:Where to from here?

A: We are setting up groups of ABC members that wish to partake or be part of any training, cluster group discussions or any ABC related group interaction that requires face to face meeting. 

Q: How can that be achieved?

A: We will have an online form where any ABC member can request an online multi site video conference, all you need to do is complete the form with the name of the participants, the  time, the duration, the subject matter and the BC Admin will set  up a closed meeting, were an email will be sent to those participants only,  This will only be for current ABC members or affiliates. There is a cost for this type  of service but the ABC will offer this as an ongoing service FREE for all members, not just for the current COVID-!9 issues  but for all training and major meetings the  likes of the upcoming AGM.
