General Meeting Guidelines

Even with small number of people participating in online seminars it is easy for meetings to get out of hand. Since our seminars may have large numbers of people participating it is important to have guidelines in place to allow people to participate in an orderly fashion.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be a different presenter for each seminar , as a result these guidelines will change slightly from one seminar to another. Each seminar will begin with a very brief review of the guidelines that apply to that seminar

Figure 2 (website access) and Figure 3 (Zoom application) below have screen shots of Zoom. From them you can see how to access the functions listed below.

• Mute your mike
      o Barking dogs, playing children, and flushing toilets can be irritating to others. Please mute your mike until you are called upon to speak. When you are finished speaking, please mute your mike again.
• Raise your hand
      o We will be watching for people raising their hands. When there is an appropriate break in the presentation, we will call on you.
• Use chat for comments or questions
      o You can post your comments and questions in the chat room by typing them in the box at the bottom of the field. You can direct you question or comment to the entire group or to a specific person. We will be monitoring the   chat room. Depending on the comment/question we could respond right away, or we could wait to a suitable break in the presentation.
• Be patient
      o This is the first time that the club has done virtual seminars. We are all volunteers, and we are doing the best that we can.

As we said, this is a new process for us. We would love to hear from you to learn how we can improve future presentations.
