Here’s the link to the meeting. You will need to “knock” on the door to be let in.

If you need to leave temporarily to make a cup of tea, etc., please don’t leave the meeting as I will have to stop to let you back in. Do what you need to do while remaining in the meeting, then come back.

This meeting will be recorded so please turn your camera off if you don’t want to appear in the recording. If you will not be able to make it to the webinar but want to make sure your questions are answered, please send them to me at at least one day ahead of time.
