First Meeting

This will be a virtual call via Google Hangouts. You will need a webcam, as well as a headset or a mic and speakers in some form - an iPad would work, for instance, if you get the Google Hangouts app. And you will need a Google account. (They're free to set up if you don't have one.) Let me know your account username ahead of time so I can be sure to invite you. If you have any trouble, I'll offer what tech support I can.
