Zoom Livestream

Zoom livestreams have become extremely popular and can even allow you to host a speaker who is not physically there. Setting up a Zoom account is easy, and it allows you to personally invite everyone on your guest list, broadcast to large audiences, and even save the video afterward for future use. There is a fee/plan you can sign up for to increase the number of attendees and time you can host on your Zoom call. However, even though there is a fee this tried and true platform is user friendly and adaptable for your attendees.
