    Northern California SME Community - Virtual Meeting #2 

    You should have received the following announcement.  We hope to see you on the call.

    I am making a call for nominations for officers.  The process is for people to step forward and self nominate themselves for one of the Section offices.  If you are interested, give me a call to discuss what the position requires.

    Some virtual meeting tips:

    • Please mute your microphone when not actively speaking.
    • Consider using a headset, to prevent feedback from your computer speakers.
    • Try using the "Chat" to text/message people during the meeting.
    • "Raise hand" to get the attention of the facilitator or speaker if you wish to interject.  
    • Use the camera if you are comfortable and your internet allows it.  It is nice to see the faces of new members and build familiarity.
    • If the meeting feed is choppy/slow, try turning off your camera to reduce data.

    Please feel free to forward this to those that you think would benefit from this.
    (Distribution is limited to those that are registered with the Nor-Cal SME Section)
