Attending hybrid lunch meetings
As the COVID-19 pandemic relaxes, the Berkeley Rotary Club is meeting in hybrid format, in downtown Berkeley and via Zoom (virtual meeting software). Our aspiration is that this be simultaneous, concurrent, fully cross-interactive. Our practices and technology are attempting to take two meetings and making them into one hybrid meeting.
All vaccinated members may choose to attend our in-person meeting at First Presbyterian Church, 2407 Dana St., Berkeley, CA 94704 .
Please enter at the main gated door on Channing Way. It is locked but a member will be there from 12:00 to 12:30 to let you in.
To meet city and church requirements those participating in person must follow these rules:
Participants must be fully vaccinated.
Church parking is not available at this time; the city lot is directly across the street.
You must fill out and submit the online health form for the church the day of the meeting. The form is available if you click here.
A $5 per person cover charge will defray our expenses. Please bring small bills; no credit cards.
Bring your own lunch if you like; no food or drink will be available.
Wear a mask on church property.
Observe social distancing. We will sit 4 to a table.
If you are at all hesitant about joining in person, please feel free to join on Zoom.
We open the Zoom session by 12:15pm for informal gathering. The formal meeting runs from 12:30 to 1:30. Q&A may run until 1:45pm. We close the Zoom session at 1:45pm.
Each meeting has its own link. We send out reminders a few days in advance and early Wednesday morning. We send out the invitations with the link to that week's session just before 12:00 noon.
If you would like to attend a meeting, please send a request by email to info@BerkeleyRotary.org, so that we can add you to our Zoom invitations. Please include your name, email address, and reason for wanting to attend. We look forward to having you visit.
