All – since we are unable to meet in person due to Covid-19 restrictions, I’d like to setup a virtual meeting using the Zoom conferencing facility. Many of you have probably participated in a Zoom session for work, church, or other reasons. If you have not, I encourage you to download the Zoom app for smartphones, tablets or laptops – not recommended for PCs as most PCs don’t have cameras for video capability.
For the Zoom sessions we are joining the NTxPCC sessions every second Monday evening.
If you have not used Zoom recently (since April 15), you will want to download their newest version 5 for the app.
Email me with any questions/comments you may have prior to next Tuesday’s session.

See the attached file for visual directions to our meeting location at Presby-Plano. Verbally, we will be meeting in the Oak Room of the Conference Center which is located on the lower level (LL-elevator) in Tower A. Enter thru the main hospital entrance and proceed to the West Elevators to the right of the reception desk and snack bar (open until 8P for you Starbucks lovers). Take the elevator down to LL, follow signage to the Conference Center – the Oak Room will be on your right as you enter the center. There is also a bank of vending machines for drinks and snacks near the elevator exit on the lower level. Ample parking should be available in front of the hospital at the time of day we meet. In the event of inclement weather, I suggest parking in the garage at the East end of the hospital and walking under cover thru the building to the main lobby to the West Elevators in Tower A.
Until then, be safe and be healthy!
