All of our virtual (online) programs are offered through Zoom. It is a free service with a downloadable app for your smart phone, tablet or you can go online. Some sessions will have video chat options – which we encourage because seeing familiar faces can help reduce isolation and increase your mental health. For sessions without video chat options, please use the chat feature to type in your questions.

How do I join the webinar?
A join webinar link should have be emailed to you from “Chapter Services1 NHF” after you registered via the above link. Please use the “Join Zoom Meeting” link in that email.

I don’t have a strong enough internet connection at home or a device: There is a call-in option for the conference. Please let us know ahead of time if this is an issue for you and we will send you the presentation images and the call-in number.

What if I get disconnected or can’t login?
We will be actively troubleshooting throughout the web-conference. Text 619-325-9401 if you have any technical difficulties and we will try to help you get back into the web-conference. We encourage everyone to start logging in at 5:50 pm so that we have time to help you troubleshoot and you will still be eligible for the dinner.

If I get disconnected will I still be eligible for the dinner gift card?
To be eligible for the dinner gift card after a disconnection, you need to try to log back in, text us at 619-325-9401, and attempt to join by phone only. If you’ve exhausted all options, cannot log back in, and have completed 75% or less of the web-conference, you will be placed on a waiting list for the gift cards if supplies are available.

Is this a video conference? Can people see me?
This is a video conference but for tonight’s event only the speakers will be visible. No one will be able to see or hear you during tonight’s program.

How will I receive my dinner gift card?
If pre-registered and you are logged in and actively participating during the full hour for the web-conference (6:00 PM – 7:00 PM), you will be emailed a e-gift card to be used to purchase dinner on a later date (please note: gift cards will be sent to the email you used to register).

How do I access video from my smart phone or tablet?
Download the free Zoom App available for apple, google and android.

How do I submit questions during the program?
Please use Zoom’s chat feature to submit questions during the program. We will make sure to answer them during the Q&A. We ask that you only use this feature to submit questions and limit conversation.
