I recently was asked to do a program on Live Foods for the Danbury Aquarium Society. Originally we (my wife and I) planned to travel to Danbury, but unfortunately COVID put a kibosh on the trip. Instead we tried to do a ZOOM meeting.
It went wonderfully! I was able to attach my Power Point program to ZOOM and do the same program I would have done live. I was really impressed with how many DAS members showed up in the ZOOM room and how smoothly it all went. Several members had really great questions and I hope I was able to answer them to everyone’s satisfaction. Hopefully someday down the line I will be able to give a program in person to these great hobbyists.
I want to thank in particular Barb Romeo and Joe Masi for their help in setting this up and Joe’s knowledge of ZOOM. Thanks to them I now have a decent working knowledge of the ZOOM program and how to use it both as a host as well as a client.
The Central New York Aquarium Society has approached me to do a program for them. We are still working out the details. I suspect it will be another ZOOM show, but that’s fine. Perhaps Gov. Cuomo will relax the rules a little in time for me to attend the meeting instead of it being a ZOOM show. Either way, I look forward to returning to CNYAS where I have given a few presentations. I always enjoy the group there.
