Online Protocols for General Meeting

This won’t be smooth. It might be messy. Be patient and work with us. Be respectful. Thank you!

  • Two ways you might be connecting – computer or phone
    • We encourage computer if possible so that you can utilize the platform tools for participating
  • If you are using the Zoom platform, we have enabled tools that provide opportunities to participate without speaking. E.g. thumbs up, clapping, etc.
  • Privacy: Please do not take screen shots or copy the chat for sharing. This is not a public meeting.
  • Muting
    • For computer users, we will auto-mute all of you.
    • For phone users, please mute yourselves
    • Please make sure you’re off mute if it is your turn to talk
  • Voting
    • For computer users, we will be using the Zoom poll function
    • For phone users, we call for verbal ‘nay’ votes only
  •  Questions/Comments
    • For computer users, there is a ‘raise hand’ function for you to use. Once the moderator adds you to the speakers list, they will ‘lower your hand’.
    • For phone users, we will occasionally pause and ask for questions/comments from those using phones to dial in. Please say your name if you have a question and wait until identified to speak.
  • The chat function will also be moderated for questions. It is also a great place for you to just share your ideas and thoughts with each other.

The minutes and the slides will, as always, be posted in the Members Portal.
