What can ZOOM offer you?
Zoom can include up to 100 participants in online meetings. Participants can join with just audio, or both audio/video on either mobile or desktop.

ZOOM Set-up Process:
Email Conference Administrator to make your request, including ZOOM in the email subject line. Indicate the day and time for your meeting. Generally, meetings are limited to 2 hours. Please email your request at least 24 hours in advance if at all possible. If there is no conflict with previously scheduled conference meetings or prior requests, I will email meeting details for you to share with all participants. Otherwise, I will let you know ZOOM is unavailable.
