SCCC April 9th Meeting Via WebEx

April 09, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Our next meeting, Thursday, April 9th, will be held again using the WebEx video conferencing system. At this meeting we will be reviewing and commenting on the View and Review images. The theme for April is “Signs of Spring”.  If you haven’t submitted anything yet the deadline has been extended to Wednesday, April 8th at 6:00 pm.  Send your images to [email protected].  Be sure and put View and Review in the subject line. Other item’s on the meeting agenda include a report from the Nominating Committee regarding nominees for the Vice Presidents positions that is being vacated by Jerry Mennenga, tentative plans for May’s annual awards banquet and report on the 2020 N4C convention.

Instructions for joining this meeting are the same as last month and can be reviewed below.  You should not need to download any software to connect. Simply click on the up-dated link below, which Mitch will activate at 6:45pm CDT:

If you are, for some reason, asked for a meeting number, enter 928 675 681. If you are asked for a password, enter SCCC. You should not need this information, based on the testing we did earlier. 

The video conference will be configured to automatically mute your microphone. If you want to speak so others can hear you, click the Mic button so it turns gray. When you are done, click it again to mute yourself. The button will turn red. Because the internet all around us is being overwhelmed with so many people at home, please turn OFF (red) your video camera unless you are one of the judge chairs who will be reading the results.

Instead of turning on your microphone, we strongly recommend using the chat feature during the video conference if you want to ask a question or make a comment. Click the speech bubble icon (labeled “Chat” in the attached image) and you’ll get a chat section on your screen next to the video. Mitch will monitor the chat so that the judge chairs can be asked to stop, back up, etc. based on comments.

If you have trouble hearing, please first make sure that the volume is turned up on your computer. If that doesn’t solve the problem, we have found through testing that disconnecting (Click the red X button labeled “Disconnect” in the attached image.) and then clicking the link in this email to connect again has solved the problem.

If things go to plan, a recording of this meeting will be available to watch within a day or two for those who are unable to join or have technical difficulties.
