How to set up for a FREE Zoom meeting

ZOOM is VERY easy to use

For our BFO meetings, there will be a link provided that you just click and voila you are there.  Make sure you have your audio on (so everyone can hear you), you do NOT have to connect a video if you don’t want to be seen – but let’s face it… we want to see and hear each other during this stressful time.

Create your FREE account  https://zoom.us/freesignup/

Do you need an account to use Zoom?
A Zoom account is not required if you are strictly joining Zoom Meetings as a participant. If someone invites you to their meeting, you can join as a participant without creating an account. However, if the host has restricted joining meetings using authentication profiles, then the participant will need a Zoom account to access the meeting

A Zoom account is only required if you need to create your own meetings and send invitations to participants. Having a Zoom account allows you to create your own Instant Meetings or Schedule Meetings. An account also allows you to access your personal settings, where you can update your profile or upgrade your plan at any time. 

How do I signup for Zoom?
You can sign up for a free Zoom account at zoom.us/signup

How much does Zoom cost?
A basic Zoom license is free. Learn more about available Zoom plans and pricing.

Joining a Meeting 

How do I join a Zoom meeting?

Can I Use Bluetooth Headset?
Yes, as long as the Bluetooth device is compatible with the computer or mobile device that you are using.

Do I have to have a webcam to join on Zoom?
While you are not required to have a webcam to join a Zoom Meeting or Webinar, you will not be able to transmit video of yourself. You will continue to be able to listen and speak during the meeting, share your screen, and view the webcam video of other participants.

Upcoming Events

  • Walk to Remember 2021
    Dear Members, Wishing you all a healthy and safe 2021. The Walk to Remember committee met through Zoom this past Monday night and we have decided to move forward with a virtual Walk. While we look forward to continuing a longstanding tradition of honouring our loved ones while walking in their memory and raising funds for BFO-Durham, things will look a little different this year due to the current environment: • We welcome everyone to walk either on your own or with your household anytime between now and Sunday, March 7, 2021. After this, we ask that you email or mail your sponsor sheets to our office • We encourage everyone to contact family and friends to sponsor BFO-Durham, in a year where our Walk will be adapting to our current restrictions. One option would be to set up a charitable fundraiser on your personal Facebook page, with donations going directly to BFO-Durham (please make sure to select “charitable”). Other forms of social media could also be used to spread awareness of the event, including Instagram • Unlike previous years where the Walk has taken place in one location, this year’s setup will allow for family and friends to support and take part, regardless of where they are located. We encourage all participants to submit a video of what their Walk will look like this year – details to follow • There will be a silent auction set up online, similar to the one we did in the fall. This will launch roughly one week before the March 7, 2021 deadline • We will also have prizes for the top three members with the highest amount of money raised Further details regarding our Walk to Remember 2021 will be found in our newsletter which will come out at the end of January. Thank you and stay safe, Jane Carter
