Attendee Tips


What you need to know:

  • BE ON TIME: We will start on time. The waiting room will open 10 minutes before the session.  Use this time to chat with fellow attendees or the speaker or introduce yourself on chat! 
  • IDENTIFY YOURSELF: We request you include your full name in your Zoom profile.  This will help the presenters and your fellow participants engage with you.
  • TURN VIDEO ON: This is a requirement of participation. We want to see you!  Since we can’t be in person, let’s be face to face.  It’s invaluable in making strong connections and shows your support of the presenter and fellow attendees. 
  • MUTE YOUR MIC: As you arrive into the meeting, you will be placed on mute.  Please stay muted throughout the session, except when talking.  Don’t worry, we’ll remind you.
  • CHAT: The chat window is your friend.  Use it to ask AND answer questions outside the prompt. If you have a technical issue, send a message through chat directly to the meeting host (not the speaker please.)  You can also chat directly with a specific participant.
  • ENGAGE: Be engaged!  The more you participate in the session, the more you will get out of it.
  • CONSENT TO RECORD: We will be recording the video and audio from this session. Registering and entering the virtual meeting space is considered implied consent. If you do not want to be recorded we request you view this presentation at a later date when the recording is posted.
  • CANCELLING: If your plans change and you will not be attending, we request you cancel using the link provided in your confirmation. Advance notice is helpful to presenters who may be planning activities based on participant numbers.
  • TERMS AND CONDITIONS: All participants are expected to comply with our terms and conditions.
