Volunteer To Host Zoom Meetings

Ever wonder how those amazing Zoom meetings you attend actually happen?

The Platform Committee for the Virtual Northeast Regional AA Service Assembly (NERAASA) 2021 needs your help!

We are looking for volunteers to assist hosting Zoom meetings & webinars. Experience hosting your home group, committee or district meeting is suggested.

Hosting Zoom meetings is letting people in from the waiting room, confirming attendees are in the right place, enabling features such as polling if needed by the chair, moderator, or presenter, monitoring the room for bombers, any rude or inappropriate behavior and responding as quickly as possible, and any other technical issues that might arise from attendees.

Based on your current service position, you will be placed in the appropriate roundtable room so that you can also benefit from the NERAASA experience. Training will be provided by our outsourced production company. You are never alone!

Please contact John D.
