Since switching from in-person to online meetings, TALG has partnered with Canadian Webinar Solutions (CWS) to ensure that lectures are delivered smoothly via Zoom, and that expert IT support is available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org at any point, if you need help.
You will need high-speed internet to participate in the Zoom lectures, but the Zoom application is free to download.
Once registered, you will receive two emails from CWS each week, containing the link to the Zoom lecture you registered for. If you signed up for both series, you will receive separate emails for each lecture. (If you registered but don’t receive these emails, please contact email@example.com.) Click on the link in the email, and the Zoom program should open. Look for the wording “Join Zoom Meeting”, hover your mouse over the https line and click. There is a support person on hand, during lectures, to provide technological support as needed – just type a message via the Chat feature on Zoom.
Yes, our Policies and Procedures page lists how we handle such issues. These policies and procedures have evolved over time, in an effort to deal with situations consistently and fairly.
TALG’s Program Committee conducts an annual survey with registrants to determine current topics of interest. The committee also considers what topics have been covered in past years, and has access to suggested speakers lists through the Third Age Network of Ontario. If you have a suggestion for a topic or speaker, we’d love to hear it – please get in touch!
Everyone who subscribes to our Mailing List via this website, or has previously registered for a lecture series, will be notified about upcoming lecture series. Your information is never shared with other groups, and you can unsubscribe at any time. Please also watch this website for updates.
TALG uses PayPal to ensure safe payments online, through major credit cards – but you can use the service as a guest, without having a PayPal account. Please check this website for registration dates, and follow the directions on our Registration page. Your emailed receipt from PayPal is your confirmation; TALG does not issue a separate confirmation. If you have difficulties or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not record lectures or post lecture content, due to copyright and intellectual property concerns. Our lecture dates and details are posted in advance of registration, we hope you’ll check your availability and mark the dates in your calendars.
TALG is completely volunteer-run, and we’re always pleased to welcome new volunteers. We are a “working Board”, setting policy and direction and carrying out the various tasks involved. If you are interested, please contact us – and let us know if you have skills/experience in any aspect of our work (i.e., speaker identification, programming, online technology, finance, publicity, registration).
As a nonprofit and volunteer-run organization, TALG is committed to making the cost very affordable. Your $50-per-person lecture fees are our only source of income. This covers various administrative costs, speakers’ fees, and either the rental of our meeting venue, or the services of an IT company to ensure smooth online lecture delivery.
TALG welcomes your enquiries, input and feedback! We’d love to hear from you, whether you have a question, a great topic or speaker to suggest, or are interested in volunteering.
