Monthly Saugerties Climate Smart Task Force Meeting
Our meetings are always open to the public. This meeting will be conducted via Zoom video conference. Please use the link below to join the meeting on your computer, tablet, or phone.

How to connect your audio, when joining via computer:
After you join the meeting zoom will ask you how you want to connect via audio.

If you join the meeting via the zoom app, then you will get prompted to use either “Computer audio” or “phone call”. If you can connect to the audio via your computer that is best. If you can’t use computer audio and opt for “phone call”, then zoom displays instructions on what number to call and displays your “participant ID”.

Here is a zoom tutorial on joining audio.
