We welcome members and new users! Come join us for our meeting by downloading the meeting application called join.me (see instructions in other column). Download it into a folder and name it "join.me". Before you can use the join.me app, you must install it. Go to the folder where you downloaded it and double click on the app's icon to install it. When installation is complete you will have a join.me icon on your desktop. Click on the join.me icon and enter "rugmeeting2" in the 'Start' area (also described as "enter code" box). After joining the meeting, be sure to click on the telephone icon on the top left of your screen and then click "Internet". There are buttons on the join.me control panel at the top of your screen. Click on the people button and enter your name by clicking on the word "ViewerXX" (XX is some number) and add your first name, last initial, state and 'M' if you're a RUG member; or you can put in just your last name. Of course, you don't have to be a member to attend our meetings.
