– Zoom has had some upgrades of recent to make the calls more secure. It is one of the most preferred methods of video conferencing software in Hawke’s Bay.
– You can join the call by ringing in from your home phone or cellphone. You don’t need to actually be on a video call. You just need the ID and password for the call.
I look forward to meeting you all. Don’t forget to bring your non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage and a smile!
