Our next AR meeting will be held on Tuesday, September  19 at 4:15 pm. This will be a virtual meeting where ARs have the opportunity to attend in person (at the district office) or  online using Google Hangouts Meet. If you’d like to attend using your computer, make sure you have a microphone (a webcam would be nice, too) and an up-to-date version of Google Chrome. If you plan on attending using your smartphone, be sure to download the Hangouts Meet app for iOS or Android. There will be a test call on Monday, September 18 at 4:15 pm if you’d like to make sure your technology is working properly to participate online. ARs should check their e-mail for full details on how to connect to the meeting and the test call. Remember … you’d rather attend in person, just come to the district office at 4:15!
