Dear CAG Members and Friends of CAG
Due to health safety reasons, CAG will not be meeting LIVE just yet, but have teamed up with Zoom to bring our members and guest speaker together on your home screen.
You do not need to pay/subscribe to Zoom to attend the meeting. Just click on the meeting link, follow the screen instructions, and wait for the moderator to open the meeting. See info below.
Cynthia Simmons, CAG’s Vice President will be our Zoom Moderator and will be at the controls to help you get the most out our Zoom meeting experience. To help Cynthia, please silence your cell phones, turn off any background noises (TV, barking dogs, snoring spouses, etc.) and, if using the video on your device, please be modestly clothed. For CAG meetings, “No shirt—No Zoom for you!” Cyndi can mute the whole group to better hear the speaker’s presentation, but then open up individuals later for questions and comments, so be sure to raise your hand. (See ending of this email for Zoom meeting link info)
