Online Members Social
Are you interested to meet or socialise with other GOC members online, from the comfort of your home? Perhaps you don't find it easy to join many of our outdoor events for one reason our another, or you're interested to connect with members beyond those that you usually meet in person?
Join us for our new Online Member Social in Zoom, on the 4th Thursday of every month from 7-8pm - starting from June 2023. Whatever your interest, and whatever your level of technical experience or expertise, you are welcome.
This is a continuation of our longstanding Online Social in Zoom. From June 2023 it is every month on the 4th Thursday, instead of fortnightly, to complement a new Online Welcome Social every month on the 2nd Tuesday - do please join either or both!
We start each online social with a quick round of introductions. If you have something in particular that you would like to share or ask, this is your chance to let others know what that is. Then we spend most of our time mingling and chatting informally - in small breakout groups if there are many of us. We close each session by gathering all together again to hear something of what we all shared or enjoyed during the session.
Please consider offering to share a brief report afterwards on the GOC website, to share something of your experience and to encourage others to attend in future. Please take a screenshot of those present, with their permission of course, and upload it afterwards with a few lines of text at Submit a new event report. See recent reports on the Online group page as examples.
Our Zoom meeting room is accessible on a computer, tablet or smartphone via an app, or with more limited functionality via your browser or you can even dial-in by telephone - see our member-only page How to use Zoom.
