Hi all,


During this time of world-wide shut-in and “social-distancing,” many community 
origami groups have turned to virtual meetings, using videoconferencing 
platforms like Zoom, Google Hangouts Meet, etc. Many of those groups are also 
more than happy to open their meetings to anyone who would like to join in! To 
help facilitate this, we at OrigamiUSA have opened up our calendar of events 
(https://origamiusa.org/calendar) to anyone who wants to post an online meeting 
that is open to the wider folding community.


You don’t need to be an OrigamiUSA member to post or see a meeting; you DO need 
to have registered on the website to post a meeting (we do that to discourage 
spammers). You can post information about the meeting (date, time, what to 
expect), and, as you prefer, contact information for people to learn more or 
you can also include the direct meeting link. If you include the meeting link, 
it will only be shown to people who have logged in to the website—again, to 
protect the meeting from miscreants and the phenomenon of zoombombing.


We invite you to visit the calendar and see some of the online meetings that 
have already been posted, and, if you are organizing an online meeting that is 
open to others, post its details for others to join in. It’s a great way to 
both pass the shut-in time, and to remind ourselves that origami truly is a 
world-wide community built on sharing!


See you online,


Patty, Kathleen, Shrikant, Melissa, Robert, Anne, and the rest of the 
OrigamiUSA Community Groups and Website teams
