North Carolina State University’s winter cotton meetings will be held virtually using Zoom this year due to COVID-19. You will be able to watch these on your computer. They will be recorded in case you can’t watch at the time they are live. There will be three ways to participate:
• Some counties may allow you to come into the county office to watch the Zoom and others may not be able to due to COVID-19 restrictions. Your county agent will let you know if this is the case.
• Watch Zoom synchronously (live) at home or office. You will be able to ask questions with this option if you like. Your county agent will send out a link to watch the meetings the day or two before the meeting. We don’t want to send out links too early to reduce the chance of Zoom bombing.
• The Zoom meetings will be recorded so that you can watch them when it is convenient for you.
