I am attending a bi-yearly meeting via a virtual link, what should I expect?
We ask that you do your best to adhere to the following virtual meeting etiquette guidelines:
please come on time, there will be a 5 minute grace period incase of technical issues. (please download the meeting software/app beforehand as this may need more time to download and set-up.
We plan to project all virtual attendees via a large screen, so please come presentable in the same way that you would for an in-person meeting.
We will have a 'camera on' policy, so please engage in the meeting and do not be a distraction to other attendees.
We expect virtual attendees to be respectful and listening to other participants that are talking, so please stay muted until you would like to speak.
Do not leave the room during the meeting unless absolutely necessary, stay seated and stay present. we ask this of all attendees regardless of if they are virtual or in-person.
A member of the media team will be monitoring virtual attendees, please do not abuse this option, as members will be making notes for future meetings.
We have tried to lay out guidelines that will hold both in person and virtual meetings attendees to the same level of respect. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out via email or question box on the site.
