Virtual Boardroom QUICK START

Welcome to ACPAA's Virtual Boardroom.  This is a quick start guide to help you get into the meeting with as little hassle as possible.

First and foremost, you DO NOT need to purchase or download any special software to access this meeting. If you have a fairly new computer and updated browsers, you should be able to join without issue. If you're new to the virtual meeting game, then this guide will walk you through step-by-step. 

This guide has opened in a separate window, allowing you to easily reference it as you enter the meeting.
