Staying Connected - Zoom Zoom!

Video conferencing is a great way to stay connected with your usual social groups or form some new ones. Some neighbours are taking advantage of ZOOM in order to host virtual Book Club, Wine Tastings, Coffee and visits with friends and family.

If you would like some assistance figuring out how to get Zoom loaded onto your computers, iPad or phone, send in a request form to EPRA and we will find a volunteer to phone you and assist.

Tips for Zoom

  • For laptops you can hover your mouse on the bottom portion of your screen in order to mute/unmute your microphone, have reactions (e.g., thumbs up for board motion approval or that you would like to speak)
  • Side conversation for all to see is available. You can also have the option to send someone a private message during the call
  • Anyone can pull up a document for everyone to review. They can scroll through the document, etc.
  • Host can mute all participants
  • Free however, the call is limited to 40 minutes. If a board member has a license, they can have 100 participants and unlimited calling time
