There is no password for our meetings. We use a waiting room instead. Join board meetings up to five minutes before the meeting starts and wait to be admitted into the room.
Zoom is not deaf friendly. We have found it necessary to do spotlighting as many members use a phone and can only see one or two people at a time. For this reason, we ask that participants not connect audio when joining the room, or to join with the microphone and leave it on. Participants can mute their phone or computer if concerned about disturbing others around them.
When we spotlight someone, if the person is muted, Zoom will nag the person to turn on their microphone every time they are spotlighted. It is easier to just leave the microphone on or better yet to not connect audio at all when joining the meeting.
For accommodations please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
Oregon ASL Community Events
We have a Google Group where anyone can share events, news, jobs, as well, all posts are checked by moderators before being sent out to everybody by email. See instructions on how to join.
Liking OAD's FaceBook page is another good place to learn about ASL community events in Oregon. To share an event to the OAD community, create a post from wherever (your personal FB account, or a FB page you own or control) and tag OAD by mentioning us by adding "@Oregon Association of the Deaf" to the post,
