Round Table will be held on May 14, 2022.
Round Table is a semi-annual conference hosted by the Kingdom of Ansteorra.
The conference features:
Typically current and future officers must attend warranting and training classes in order to qualify for their positions.
As a result of the Kingdom of Ansteorra’s status as a non-profit educational organization, we have access to Google Workspace Education resources. Specifically, we have access to GSuite resources and Google Classroom which provides high-capacity meeting rooms and resources that are available through our official email accounts. These resources do not cost the Kingdom extra money, and they allow us significantly higher capacity for attendance (1000 attendees per room), hosts (up to 25 per room), and meeting duration (300 hours per meeting). In addition, since we have access to these resources through our official email accounts, the Kingdom does not need to use accounts that are owned by individuals or by private businesses in order to achieve the capacity needed to host Round Table virtually. We understand that using a new platform is a change for us, for you, and for the event. We thank everyone for their patience and feedback as we move to a platform that will increase our capacity, lessen the workload for future virtual events, and save us money in the long run.
From the Round Table Schedule (below the FAQ) press or click on the link for the meeting room you wish to join. Each of these links look like “Join Room 1” or “Join General Room”.
Note: if you are joining from a mobile device, you will be prompted to install the corresponding Google Meetings application (gmail, google meetings, etc) and you can use the Room Code to join.

No. With the current version of GSuite that we have, in-meeting recording is not available to us. However, with a new effort to create on-demand, online training for Ansteorra officers, the need to record will lessen.
By default for this Round Table, only Hosts will be able to share screens. If you need to share your screen and are not a host, you’ll need to either send your files to the Host or ask the host to enable screen-sharing for everyone. In order to screen share, you will need to use the Google Chrome web browser or the Google Meetings application.
Note: If you start sharing while another host is sharing, the other share will be interrupted.
As a host you will be able to do the following from either the Settings icon (a gear) or the Host controls icon (a shield with a lock on it)
