Online meeting tips for 4-H Clubs 

Any interested in holding a club, project, volunteer, or other 4-H meeting during the quarantine period are encouraged to do so online. We recommend Zoom and tips for setting up a zoom meeting safely are included in this tip sheet. A basic zoom account has a 40 minute time limit 4-H agents can help you A. use a school email from someone in your club to bypass the time limit or B. set up the meeting with our K-State emails to bypass the time limit. Let us know how we can help you!
