Goal: Everyone has a positive experience and equal opportunity to participate.
All Newcomers are invited to Come As You Are virtual gatherings. We will check on one another and see how everyone is coping with the Stay At Home mandate. Let's "come as we are" and spread positive vibes!
Open to all Club members, enjoy getting to know other Newcomers using Zoom. You do not need to prepare, and a Zoom account is not needed.
Each gathering is structured to support open communication without interruptions and lasts about an hour. Everyone is encouraged to participate at whatever level feels most comfortable.
