APAC Guidelines for Online Meetings using ZOOM


At APAC we have standardized on the ZOOM platform for virtual meetings. Some of you may already be familiar with Zoom. But if you are not here is how Zoom describes themselves:

“Zoom is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, collaboration, chat, and webinars across mobile de- vices, desktops, telephones, and room systems.”

Essentially, Zoom is an application for computers and mobile devices that enables remote video conferencing, communication and collaboration tools.

In order for you to participate in APAC online meetings you will need to do the following:

  1. Download the ZOOM client from zoom.us onto your device and ready it to join a meeting. Zoom works on desktop computers, laptops and mobile devices like tablets and phones. You can choose to use any of these devices to join our meetings.
  2. At the time of the meeting enter the Meeting ID and the Meeting Password into the Zoom client application and join. For security purposes meeting credentials are emailed to members on the day of the meeting.
  3. Have fun and enjoy the meeting!
