Meeting Etiquette

Once you are in the meeting, please be aware of the following technical and meeting professional etiquette issues:

  • Do Not Turn On Your Camera
    • We want to maintain sustainable bandwidth, so we will not use video of each participant.
  • Mute Your Microphone
    • You can do this by using the button at the bottom center that looks like a microphone. Otherwise all of your background noises will be heard and sometimes echoes occur.
  • If your sound is not working for any reason, don’t panic. 
    • Please just click on the navigation button (icon with three lines) in the upper left-hand corner. 
    • You will then see a pull-down menu. 
    • Click on “Use your phone for audio” on that menu. 
  • Using the Chat Function
    • If you want to speak, please use the chat function and type your question in. The chat function is also available for simpler questions or comments that you can share throughout the meeting. (There is no need to raise your hand to use the chat function).
    • Lisa Wollenberg, Vice Chair, will moderate the session/chat and acknowledge you so that you can speak as we would do in a normal meeting.
