Board of Directors Workshop/Chat
Today, March 26th at 1:00 PM via Zoom
The Sun City Grand Board of Directors are planning to meet virtually today, March 26th, at 1:00 PM due to the CDC's recommended method of social distancing. The Association is going to accomplish this by holding this meeting via "Zoom." Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video. We recognize that this is a new method of communication, and we are asking for your patience as we iron out all of the kinks. Please note, if you experience any difficulties accessing this workshop, rest assured that this meeting will be recorded and uploaded to www.vimeo.com/grandtv shortly after.
