Hi All: 


This is notice that our July chapter meeting will be held via teleconference
call on Saturday, July 11, from 10 a.m. until whenever we decide we are
finished! Since we are meeting on the phone, we can talk as long as we want.
I have pasted the instructions for the teleconference below. 


Some members will be contacted by board members to see if they need
assistance getting into the conference call. Also, if you use a smart phone
and can check email on it, the fastest way to get on the call is to tap or
double tap on the mobile users link in this email. The phone will dial the
conference information, including the access code and pound key. 


If you wish to receive the mobile user link via text, please call me by
Friday, July 10. I will be traveling that day, but if you leave a voicemail
if I don't answer, I will text you the mobile user link. 


We hope to see everyone on the conference call! 



Camille Tate

Once the meeting begins, all callers will be muted until all business is
completed. This is to ensure that everyone can hear reports from the
Treasurer, President and any other news that needs to be shared. Once
business is complete, all callers will be unmuted by the host. At this time,
the call will be open for members to ask questions, make comments and talk
to each other. Please see the below rules of etiquette for conference calls.


Conference Call Etiquette: 


*	If you are in a noisy environment, e.g., background sounds like
music, television, people talking, dogs barking, etc., please mute your
phone by hitting *6 (star key plus six). We want each person to be able to
hear one another. You can hit *6 to unmute yourself if you wish to speak. 
*	If you want to speak, please say your name and wait to be
recognized. This is the same as when we have an in-person chapter meeting.
We want everyone to participate and hear what is being said. 


We hope that we can make this conference call a fun one for our members.
This is an opportunity for us as a Federation family to come together and
see how we are dealing with the changes due to these unprecedented times. We
can share ideas on how to keep up our spirits during the stay at home order,
find out how each of us are filling our days and share resources with one
