Member-to-Member Events and Activities

Live Events

We love planning events for our members to enjoy. You can sign up for a cooking demo to make something chef-worthy at home. Keep your body moving with an exercise class. Or, take a few minutes to quiet your mind and body in a relaxation workshop.

Every Tuesday and Thursday we host live virtual classes with other members! Below is a list of upcoming live events. If you are interested in joining an event, simply click on the event title.

How to Join Live Events

Live events will be coordinated by the Member-to-Member team and be posted to the calendar on this page.

Once you have found an event you want to be part of, simply click the event title when it is time for the event to begin.

You can join using a PC or Mac using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, without installing any software. However, for the full experience, you may want to install Microsoft Teams on your PC/Mac. If joining from an Apple or Android mobile device, you must install the Microsoft Teams mobile app from Apple or Android, prior to joining your meeting.

While having Microsoft Teams installed improves the event experience, events are joined by clicking the calendar link on this page, which in turn will open Microsoft Teams. Members (or their families) will never need to open Microsoft Teams directly after installation.

For help on joining an event please call the Member-to-Member hotline at 1-347-254-7700 (TTY: 711), 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
