Updated Information about Interest Groups during CoVid-19 restrictions

 

For those of us who are in the senior age group, and to keep us safe but still connected to SeniorNet Nelson, several of the Interest Groups are holding their regular monthly meetings via Zoom. At the moment these include DIG (Digital Imagery Group), the iPad/iPhone Interest Group and the Media Group.

To participate in these “Free” tutorials via Zoom, you will need to email the host facilitator of each of the groups indicating that you wish to participate. An email for each convenor is provided below, on the website Interest Group page, on the timetable and in an email to all SeniorNet Nelson members about the current month's meeting. You will be emailed back with the required link to access the tutorial.

NOTE: These tutorials are only for financial members, so when you click on the link before the meeting you will be placed in the “Waiting room” with a message saying the host will admit you, and once you are verified as a financial member, you will be admitted.

For those who wish to make a contribution for a Zoom Meeting, here are our Bank Account details:

Our Bank Account is in the name of SeniorNet Nelson at Westpac Nelson
Bank Account Number 03-0703-0385293-00
Your name and the name of the Zoom Meeting Group (e.g. iPad or DIG etc) would help us thank you. Your Membership number would also be appreciated if possible.
