Fairfield County Alumnae’s Got Tech

Fairfield County Alumnae Chapter has grown and matured. The chapter has a large number of Delta Dears and because of its growth they are spread out throughout the county covering four major cities and several towns. How do they communicate?

They asked, What do they do for those technically challenged? The answer, Café Tech.

The session was a hit and although everyone did not have access to a camera, most of the chapter’s active Delta Dears signed on, be it audio or video, to participate in their first virtual Chapter meeting. Their next event will focus on Google, Gmail, Google drive and its use by committees and they plan to use Zoom to continue the fellowship in the comfort of their chapter members’ homes.
