2021 Spring Construction Seminar

VAST will be hosting the 2021 Spring Construction Seminar for all clubs via Zoom. 

There will be three dates for the event to allow some flexibility. A separate link for each date is shown below. We will be able to host up to 100 participants in each meeting with the VAST Zoom account. Zoom is free to download on your computer or phone, and since you are using the VAST account there should be no charge to you for downloading Zoom or attending this meeting. Zoom can be downloaded onto your cell phone, tablet or desktop computer. Additional Zoom related instructions are shown below.


Any clubs wishing to apply for any of the VAST Grant in Aid Programs will be required to have 1 person from the club in attendance at one of the three seminars for the entire 2 hours duration. There will be no joining the Zoom meeting late, or leaving the Zoom meeting early. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of the seminar and again at the end. If you are missing on either end your attendance will not be counted and you will need to attend one of the other three sessions in its entirety. All three meetings will be recorded. 


If no one from your club is able to attend one of the sessions, your club will not be eligible for any VAST gran in aid in FY 22. There will be no make up option available, so please plan accordingly.


When you log on to the Zoom meeting by clicking one of the links below, you will be required to register with your name and e-mail address before you are let into the meeting. We ask that everyone type your club name after your full name when registering. You will want to join using your computer or device audio so that you can hear others and we can hear you.

The three meeting dates and links to the Zoom meeting are listed below. Ken Brown, VAST Trails Manager, and I will have approximately 20 minutes of basic information at the beginning of each session. This will be followed up by open dialogue where participants can ask questions for the remainder of the meeting. We are hopeful that participants can learn from the questions that others ask and the answers they are provided. If there are any questions please let us know.

Following are a few Zoom tricks/protocols that will help the meeting flow smoothly.


Mute Function 
Everyone will automatically be muted upon entry into the Zoom meeting. You are expected to stay muted unless you are going to ask a question/speak. Otherwise the background noise from multiple users caused the camera to switch to the screen where the noise is coming from. You can imagine how horrible this is with multiple participants shuffling papers, clicking pens or experiencing background noise from other human or pet interaction.


To unmute/mute you should see a microphone with a red line through it on your screen. The red line means you are muted. The absence of a red line means you are unmuted.


Raise Hand Function 
If you need to say something raise your hand and remain muted until you are called on by the meeting host. The “raise hand” function is located at the bottom of your screen, far to the right near the three dots … More
Click this and you will see “Raise Hand”. With a hand emoji. Click this and your virtual hand will now be raised. The meeting host will call on you, at which time you can unmute and ask your question. Once you are done talking please be sure to place your microphone on mute again.  


Chat Function 
The meeting will move along much smoother if simple questions are asked through the “Chat” function. In your controls at the bottom window, click “chat.” If you are on a mobile device, tap “Participants”, then “Chat.” The “Chat” window will open on the right side of your screen if you are not in full screen mode. You can type your message into the “Chat” window. Press” Enter” to send your message to the entire group, or select a particular member of the group to send a private chat if you wish. Make certain you understand who you are sending the chat to before you send!


A response to the question will be given in the “Chat” window to the entire group. We will have a designated staff member to manage the “Chat” function during the meeting.
