Steps to joining Zoom Webinar (Online Seminar)

While we all deal with the coronavirus, all seminars will be conducted online via video conference (Zoom Meetings & Webinar) with the ability to also call in from your phone to listen in. [Note: If you are connecting via video, we will have your camera disabled so that you won’t appear – you’ll be fine if you’re still wearing your pajamas]

When you register for an event, you will be provided with the Zoom Webinar link as well as the phone number if you wish to call and listen in.

New to Zoom: If you have not participated in a Zoom Meeting before or recently, please follow the below steps at least an hour before the call time to avoid frustration or not being able to get on the call.

Steps To Join a Zoom Webinar/Meeting:

  • Step 1. Click on the Zoom link provided.
  • Step 2. If joining from a computer and this is your first time using Zoom, an application file will download. Click on the file and install the launcher. You may be asked to ‘open’, ‘launch’, ‘run’ or ‘save file’ (depends on your computer). It might ask you to ‘trust the source’ or ‘remember my choice’. Click ‘OK’ or ‘Yes’.
  • Step 3. If the host has not started the webinar/meeting, it will tell you to wait for the meeting to start.
  • Step 4. Once the host has started the webinar/meeting, you will click ‘join audio conference by computer’. If you want to practice ahead of time, there is a test meeting you can join at https://zoom.us/test.
