We miss you, and we all miss our meetings! But…

NPSNM chapters have turned to online presentations while state restrictions on group meetings are in place. You do not need to have a Zoom account to enjoy most of the meetings whose recordings are offered by the links below. If presented with several files to open, choose the one with a picture. Simply click on it and begin playback.

Just as with in-person meetings, there are sometimes a few minutes of introductory business prior to the scheduled speaker and presentation.           Please be patient and your reward will be most interesting and informative. If playback is faltering or intermittent, pause it and wait a few minutes for loading to catch up before you resume. With your cursor over the presentation window, click the expansion or full-screen icon at the lower right to enlarge your view.

(example of the Full Screen icon, to right of “Speed”)

If you cannot hear the presentation, make sure your computer’s volume control is turned up, and also try the Volume Control — the speaker symbol to the right of the triangular Play “button.”
