Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) regulations, many meetings are either not taking place or being held online instead for the time being. Please check the information for the meeting you want to visit to learn more.
The (online) meeting is the same as an ordinary meeting. There are a few suggestions that can improve the quality of the meeting:
Test your equipment/account before the meeting
Use a headset if necessary
Go to a room with the least background noise/distraction
Make sure your device is charged
Mute your microphone to make sure the one speaking can be heard. We ask you to mute your microphone when you are not sharing or chairing.
Note for newcomers and those who have not attended a meeting for a while: Before you travel to a meeting, we suggest that you phone the meeting contact number to make sure that there will be a meeting on the day you wish to attend. In case there is no number listed or if nobody is answering the phone you can just show up at the meeting. You are always welcome!
