A Note on BCMA Webinars

Our webinars are running on the Zoom webinar platform, which may be blocked by some firewall settings. Please contact your IT department if you are not sure if you can access the webinar.

We are aware of security concerns about Zoom meetings and the so called “Zoom Bombing” that has been in the media this year. Precautions to avoid these situations have been taken and procedures such as enabling the waiting room feature, muting all participants upon entry and disabling screen sharing have been implemented. The safety and privacy of our virtual programs are a priority for us and we are closely monitoring the situation and installing security updates that are regularly released by Zoom.
