Just saw on Facebook that several DAR chapters and a local Cub Scout pack (one of my grandsons and a member of the L&C chapter of the SAR belongs) have gone to having their regular meetings online using Zoom, a free video conferencing ap/software, to keep in touch with each other. Something to think about for chapters to still have their meetings and to stay in touch with their members. Maybe a 7pm meeting with beer in hand and just chatting. We have to stay in touch during these trying times.
The Oregon BOM is having our first virtual meeting tonight using Zoom to keep State SAR business moving. We will be discussing having our Annual State meeting on April 25 as a video conference using Zoom. You can have over 100 people on at the same time.
Also, it’s a way to connect to members who don’t normally come to meetings. It will give them something to do and meet some of their fellow compatriots. You can go to the company web site for more info. www.zoom.us
