MAFA has opened a Zoom Pro account for use by our member guilds to conduct guild meetings and simple programs. This is provided as a free service to our guilds to assist during this time when we cannot meet in person. (If you find you want to schedule programs using the Webinar feature, please let us know, and if there is sufficient demand, the board may consider upgrading our plan to allow Webinar functionality.)
How will it work?
- Use the request form below to reserve a meeting time or recurring meeting times.
- We are currently limited to one meeting per time slot, so meetings are first-come, first-served. Check the calendar below to see what we already have scheduled. We will confirm the requested date/time is available and email you meeting login and call-in info.
- A MAFA board member will host your meeting to get it started, then delegate hosting to your guild host and leave the meeting. Please be sure your guild host is at the meeting. Here are some instructions for guild hosts.
- We recommend hosts and users download the Zoom app before the meeting for the best experience and particularly for guild hosts, then you will have all the meeting controls available. Download the app in your device store, or for computers visit the Zoom download page.
- Here’s a thorough Zoom tutorial with screenshots for your guild members, courtesy of Jockey Hollow Weavers. Thanks JHW!
- And a quick cheat sheet with instructions on how to use Zoom if you prefer.
If you have any questions or need help scheduling a meeting, please email the Membership Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
