Results of telephone survey of members in regard to Zoom Lectures April to July 2021

Dear Members – first of all, we the committee want to thank you for responding so positively to our survey about Zoom.  We managed to question over 70% of all our members and found that of those surveyed, 83% of you had Zoom with some in addition willing to try to access it through a friend.  In fact 85% of you were interested in watching a Zoom lecture so we feel we can get on with relaunching this year’s programme.  Our apologies if you were not contacted, it was either because your contact details are not up to date, your phone number is blocked or you do not have an email address.   As a result of our investigation therefore, we feel we are able to go ahead and obtain a Zoom license with a view to launching our first lecture on Zoom in April this year.  Many of you, we found were already quite experienced at using Zoom but we have now put our ASTV Guide to the use of Zoom for the less sure on this website in the Documents tab.

You will be able to opt into all the lectures by clicking on a hyperlink in the relevant mailchimp email message which you will receive a week before each event and which will take you to the relevant Zoom invitation. A reminder will be sent the day before the Lecture.  All Zoom Lectures will commence at 2.15pm.

Non-members will be able to attend Zoom Lectures using the Application Form on this website in the Documents tab.

We are currently considering ways non-IT users may be able to access the content of the lectures but we have to careful of infringing copyright.

Full details of the Zoom Lecture Programme are included in the Lectures tab of this website.

We look forward to ‘seeing’ you again in April.  If you have any questions please contact one of us.  Our contact details are in the About Us/Committee Members tab of this web site.


With best regards: your Programme Team
