Testing video conferencing

We will be testing video conferencing for meeting over the next few months.  I have reviewed several products and Skype came out on top.  We are testing because I am not familiar with all the features for group.

Skype is one of the oldest and well know video conferencing platforms.  It provides a stable network and is available in most platforms, including mobile.
Link to our club skype account.

Skype advantages:
* It is Free
* Skype is preinstalled on many phones and computers.
* Up to 10 people in group video chat
* Available on multiple platforms
* No time limit.

Other products reviewed: 
*  Zoom – great product but limits conferences to 40 min
* ezTalks – another awesome product with a 40 min time limit.
* ooVoo – promising – loaded with features and pop-up ads.
* Google Hangouts – being replaced by Meet, requires Google account.
* Google Meet – Free – good reviews, requires G-suite account.
* GoToMeeting – Limited to 3 connections on free version.

Husband, dad, public servant are a few ways to describe me.  I am a caregiver, a helper.. I find happiness in making life easier and fair for others.   I am an introvert, I battle depression, and have a mild case of Asperger's syndrome.   It is easier for me to work alone, helping others from the sidelines.  Life often requires participation and have found myself in the middle of things having to take the lead. I was hired into my current job to punish rulebreakers, to be 'the regulator'.  But that is not who I am. I worked with the industry, our legal staff, and our executive staff to help businesses comply and avoid future penalties.  It took time, yet I have been able to shift my job to that helping companies follow the rules and have not issued a single penalty for over two years.As an introvert, I am working on my communication skills for relationships, for networking, and leadership.  I want to learn to bring out the best in people so that they can help themselves.
