Zoom Meetings and Chats

During the Pandemic, AAGW is connecting our community via Zoom video-conferencing.

To participate in our Zoom video meetings, you must belong to our e-mail group.

Our Monthly Support Zoom Meetings last two hours and have an agenda, which is e-mailed to members before each Monthly Meeting.  Each Monthly Support Meeting features a discussion topic.  You can see our upcoming discussion topics if you scroll further down this Web page.

Our Biweekly Zoom Chats have no agenda or discussion topics — we informally check in on one another.  Biweekly Chats last one hour and are more intimate, and less formal than our Monthly Support Meetings.

We have the following AAGW Zoom events coming up:

  • Saturday evening, January 28, 2023, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

We use Zoom, a user-friendly video-conferencing service that is used for work, education, worship, social work, telehealth, and even virtual parties.

Before participating in your first Zoom video meeting, we suggest you download Zoom and try it out, to become familiar with it:

You can also participate in our Zoom video support meetings and informal video chats via old-fashioned telephone.

Zoom offers helpful how-to articles and video tutorials.

In March 2020, CBS broadcast a humorous look at using Zoom at home.
