2 - We’ll have a ten minute presentation on train related postcards and stamps

5 - Open discussion (bring your favorite train related postcards to show off!)
6 - Share your vendors - Please come prepared to share info your favorite vendors for Postcrossing activities (postcards, rubber stamps, stickers, wash tape, pens, etc.)
A note on Zoom etiquette:
When you enter the event you will initially be placed in a waiting room. One of the hosts will quickly get you into the conference, this is done so that we can accurately create an attendance record and verify that we have all of your info correctly.
Please mute your microphone when you are not speaking.
Once in the conference, please add your Postcrossing handle to your Zoom login name. This can easily be done by using the three dot pull down menu next to your name and is not a permanent change.
We ask that all participants participate at least once in the chat. This helps us with the attendance record.
Note that the chat will be recorded and may be made public following the teleconference. We may also attempt to record the whole thing this time.
An event card is being produced for this event, and will be made available to all attendees. Details will be provided during the event. Photos of both sides of the event card can be seen below once it is printed.
This event is open to all postcrossers, no matter where you live! In the past we have had postcrossers from Norway, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, England, Canada the Philippines, Uganda, Mexico, The Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden as well as numerous U.S. States and the District of Columbia. Hope to see YOU there!
