Zoom licence available to WPF clubs

I’m pleased to announce that the WPF has purchased a Zoom Pro licence which it is making available to clubs from 6-Jul-20.  It enables a meeting of up to 100 people for 24 hours which one of the WPF Executive will host (but almost certainly not for 24 hours).  This will enable clubs, who have not yet put their toe in the waters of online meetings, to have a go and it will permit meetings of more people, without time constraints, compared with the free version of Zoom.  There will be no charge for this service.

If you wish to take advantage of this, please send an email to wpfconf@gmail.com with “WPF ZOOM SESSION – CLUB & DATE” in the subject line/box.  The email must specify the Date, Time and Duration of the requested meeting, together with Liaison contact’s name, email and phone number.  We will reply by email and, if the license can be made available for that occasion, will confirm details and discuss any training or testing that may be necessary or useful.

The WPF Exec will be learning about this new initiative as we go and will announce any modifications as we find them necessary.

PAGB Recorded Lecture Service

Camera clubs and societies have made the decision to cancel their club meetings in an attempt to reduce the risk of infection of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). To support clubs and societies during this difficult time we have decided to relax the terms of business for the PAGB RLS and allow the distribution of recorded lectures to members within their respective club or society.

Clubs and societies are asked to adhere to the following conditions:

  1. Clubs and societies may only distribute a PAGB lecture to their members providing they own a license for that lecture.
  2. Clubs and societies may only distribute a PAGB lecture to their members up until 31 May 2020.
  3. Clubs and societies are asked to ensure that all copies (including any links) are destroyed or removed on or before 31 May 2020.
  4. A club official must send an email informing the PAGB RLS Sec of the club or societies intention to distribute a lecture, prior to doing so giving details of said lecture.
