Re: Sharing out experience with Virtual Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

I was Executive Secretary and was involved in all of the discussions but from what I could tell they just used the tools in the zoom account. You get more control when you get a paid account.

Re: Virtual best practices during quarantine

I’m going to pass some of that along. Our ward is having its first ward meeting via zoom Sunday but my brothers ward has been having them from the start of this thing.
