Or download Zoom Client for Meetings from zoom.us

If you are on Windows, your downloaded file will be “ZoomInstaller.exe” or “Zoom_launcher.exe”, and you need to open and run that file. If you are on a Mac, your downloaded file will be “zoomusInstaller.pkg”, and you need to open that file.

If you have trouble installing, you may need to check your security settings or System Preferences and temporarily allow programs from unidentified developers to be installed.

You can join the event by clicking the Join button on our site, or pasting the meeting url into your browser. You will be prompted by your browser to launch the Zoom application.
