Mid-Atlantic Postcrossers May 2021 Virtual Meetup

Needs a location

This event will be conducted virtually on Zoom. That means you attend by videoconference (teleconference if you don't have video capability). Zoom is a cross-platform application that supports this capability.

The password to join this event will be provided to all who have RSVPed just prior to the event via an email from this site.

The theme of this event is addresses and postcrossing geography! Please come prepared to talk about your experiences with these topics via correspondence, particularly with postcards and postcrossing! Bring cards to share!

1 - Introductory remarks
2 - Geographic Rround-the-table introductions, via Google Earth
3 - Short presentation addressing systems
5 - Open discussion (bring your favorite geography related postcards and correspondence to show off!)

A note on Zoom etiquette:
When you enter the event you will initially be placed in a waiting room. One of the hosts will quickly get you into the conference, this is done so that we can accurately create an attendance record and verify that we have all of your info correctly.

Please mute your microphone when you are not speaking.
Once in the conference, please add your Postcrossing handle to your Zoom login name. This can easily be done by using the three dot pull down menu next to your name and is not a permanent change.
We ask that all participants participate at least once in the chat. This helps us with the attendance record.

Note that the chat will be recorded and may be made public following the teleconference.

An event card is being produced for this event, and will be made available to all attendees. Details will be provided during the event. Photos of both sides of the event card can be seen below once it is printed.

This event is open to all postcrossers, no matter where you live! In the past we have had postcrossers from Norway, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, England, Canada the Philippines, Uganda, Mexico, The Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden, India, Singapore and Australia as well as numerous U.S. States and the District of Columbia. Hope to see YOU there!
