CAS has adopted Zoom as the platform to deliver a programme of talks in 2020/21 whilst unable to use the regular venue. There were other choices of provider but for several reasons (e.g. wide acceptance, ease of use and cost) Zoom was selected. Further enhancements utilising Facebook and/or YouTube alongside Zoom are being kept under review but at present there is no plan to implement these immediately.
In parallel with the formal talks a CAS member offered Society members the opportunity to take part in less formal, more social gatherings via Zoom. These are held on Tuesday evenings at 19:00. If you haven't already done so but would like to join in these events, please contact Marc Delaney firstname.lastname@example.org
Specific Guidance on Talks
- A few days before each talk, an email is sent to all members who are subscribed to the CAS Mailchimp service. This email includes the link and password details to join the talk.
- On joining the meeting all participants will enter a "Waiting Room" from which - in advance of the start time - everyone will be given access to the meeting. Patience may be needed!
- Please try to enter the Zoom "Waiting Room" before the start time, as late entry may be distracting for all.
- Please also keep your audio muted whilst our introductions and the presentation are given. The intention is to have a Q&A on the conclusion of the presentation at which point individuals will be invited to unmute.
