An Important Message From the ARPCA President

President’s Message:
Greetings Fellow Club Members – we are in a surreal time to be sure. Certainly like nothing I have experienced before. By now, many of you have seen cancellations of the All Member Dinner, the Taste of Track, and now our Watkins Glen DE that was to be held at the beginning of May. Like the streets of downtown Pittsburgh, our calendar has become eerily silent. That is how it must be.

Monthly Club Meeting – April 2020 – Teleconference

Thursday April 9, 2020

Greetings All – We are going forward with our meeting this Thursday, April 9th, at 7 pm. Unfortunately, we will not be getting together at Randy’s place Goosebumps, but instead, we will teleconference.

The meeting will be no more than 1 hour – firm. To ensure a good experience, just a few notes of large conference call etiquette to observe:

  • Allow the presenter to deliver the full presentation before jumping into the conversation. After the presenter gives his/her report, the presenter will ask for feedback.
  • Mute is your friend – please use your mute button anytime you are not actually talking to the group (conversely, don’t forget to un-mute when you have something to say)
  • Be aware of other conversations or noise around you, including keyboard clatter, barking dogs, revving engines, etc. For more on this, see above – Mute is your Friend!

The call in details are:

Call:  (800)-724-2485 or (719)-457-6451 (toll)

Enter Access Code when prompted: 245637 followed by # (the pound sign)
