The links are straightforward – links and times – everyone has the same information.

This year, YOU control the venue!
Here are some steps you can take in advance to maximize the overall experience.

About Zoom:
Most of the program takes place with Zoom.
Zoom works best if you have a personal account set up completely before PETS begins

Learning goes best when you are comfortable and focused

  • Laptop or desktop computer recommended
    • Working webcam, microphone, speakers
      • Tablets and smartphones may be less than fully satisfactory

      • Check out all equipment leaves time to get help if needed
  • A working place without distractions
    • A comfortable chair and desk/workstation
    • Writing instruments and paper
    • Favorite snacks available in abundance
    • Favorite daytime beverage for classes, evening beverage for socials
    • Airplane mode highly recommended for your smart phone during classes

Virtual meeting etiquette

    Turn off your webcam if recording creates a problem.
  • Keep yourself muted except when planning to talk
