ZOOM HELP VOLUNTEERS 

Are you looking for something interesting to do while waiting for CALL events? Wasn’t it wonderful that most of our activities were able to pivot to using ZOOM as a solution to keep our interest groups active? CALL is looking for volunteers to help with support in the ZOOM HELP TEAM. It helps if technology does not scare you. Ideally you would be comfortable with running Zoom sessions, but do not worry if you have not done so. We will train you with all the skills you need. If you are less technical, we still have other roles that you can fulfill. One of the side benefits of this volunteer role is to make a new group of friends in CALL.

If this is of interest to you, send an email to ZoomHelp.
