How virtual workshops will work

We are trying to recreate the experience of attending the Roundup as closely as we can given the differences created by doing the event online. The virtual “Big Tent” meetings will be webinars, which are one-way communications from the speakers and meeting leaders etc. to the various members attending as a digital “audience.” These will be open to all at no charge and the Zoom links will be provided 2 hours prior to the meeting start time.

In order to participate in this year's event you will need Zoom installed on your computer. We recommend you download Zoom for your mobile device or computer before your first event. You will not need to create a Zoom login and you will not need to pay for a Zoom account.


We ask that you review our Digital Code of Conduct which we have put in place to provide a safe environment for all our guests, and which you must consent to in order to register. We also ask you to practice patience and kindness with the hosts, workshop leaders and with one another. This is new to all of us, and digital forms of communications can sometimes “flatten” the ability to interpret emotional nuance, so please be gentle with one another, be patient, and be kind.

The workshops and gratitude meeting will take place on Zoom, and will allow interaction as might occur in a regular workshop. These can be attended using a computer, smartphone, tablet or by phone dial in from a landline. Since we can’t have onsite signups to lead workshops, we will be asking people to sign up to lead on various topics in advance. Please watch your email for workshop leaders to sign up. (We expect to begin workshop leader registrations in September.) Each workshop will have a moderator or “host” to facilitate discussion and monitor for disruptive behavior.

The cabaret will be prerecorded and broadcast as a webinar, so if you are a performer, we will be asking you to record your cabaret act using a smartphone, or digital or video camera and upload it to us by Monday September 14th, so we will have time to edit the show together.

The “social gatherings” like pizza night and the dinners will be conversational zoom groups with members of our committee acting as hosts.

Why we ask for your email and mailing addresses

This year we are asking for a bit more information with your registration, for two reasons. One, your links to enter the digital roundup will be personalized to you by creating a unique user account for the digital roundup, to aid us in maintaining a safe space for us to share our recovery together. Your links and unique user id will work for one login at a time, so please don’t share your login with others. If you or your friends need assistance with the registration fees, please contact registration at to ask about a scholarship.

We are also asking for a mailing address, as we will need to send the traditional registration gift item to you. (a commemorative medallion). You are free to skip the mailing address fields in the form if you don’t wish to receive this gift item. Rest assured, we will not share, sell or distribute your mailing address other than as needed to fulfill your gift mailing.
