Lessons learned from previous Postcrossing Virtual Meetups:
When you enter you’ll be placed in a waiting room. One of the co-hosts will quickly get you through and into the conference. We’re following this process to make sure we’ve accurately gathered your information so that we can process the event cards quickly and efficiently.
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.
Zoom includes a chat (texting) function; this allows for sidebar conversations in addition to the videoconference. Often these two overlap; it is helpful if, while in chat, to state the following in your text: to whom you are responding if responding directly to someone, and a repeat back of their question.
Note that the chat will be recorded and may be made public following the teleconference. We ask that all participants participate at least one in the chat, as this helps us with determining attendance.
An event card is being produced for this event, and will be made available to all attendees, details can be seen on the event page listed above. Note that the event card does not use the Postcrossing logo as that is not permitted for virtual events.
This event will be conducted in English and is open to ALL postcrossers, no matter where you live! Last time we had postcrossers from Norway, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, England, Canada the Philippines, Uganda, Belgium and Sweden as well as 18 U.S. States and the District of Columbia. Hope to see YOU there!
