Hi, Tina,
Thank you so much for sending me the copy of last month’s minutes. I really appreciate it. I have had several conventions, illness and trying to help some people with their anxiety about covid19. I guess with the holidays coming up, I will still be pretty busy, but I want to learn the new ways of taking minutes. If we stay on Zoom, then I can just record that. But I don’t know how to record when we’re on the phone. How do you do the minutes?

Thank you very much!!!
New secretary
Ps: I have been secretary of several chapters and groups but it’s been a while. It was back when the technology was not as it is now. I’ll get it, though.
