While members are rightly concerned about COVID-19 and the dangers it presents, they also may have a greater need of community and connection during times of stress and isolation.
Two great articles by Graeme Moffatt and Tom Piper offer a look into streaming meetings, so that your members can stay connected even while they stay home.

Paul Scott suggested using Zoom’s video conferencing software, and Virginia Chilcote’s group meets via Facebook. George Rubin even invited readers to an online Zoom user group meeting for NaplesMacFriends while Macbeth Vannoy gave a thumbs up to the ideas offered.
