Currently, due to COVID-19, all workshops are conducted virtually.

  2. You will receive an email from an @bouldercounty.org email the day before the workshop with an invitation to the Zoom meeting and instructions of how to join.
  3. You do NOT need to have Zoom downloaded on your computer; this is a web-based service.
  4. If joining via phone, you will need to download the Zoom app prior to joining the workshop.
  5. If planning to access a workshop by phone, the video component will use a LOT of data. It is recommended to use the phone option when connected to Wi-Fi.
