Good practice and etiquette for attending Board of Director meetings virtually

Please mute your microphone.  We ask that all members of the public attending the meeting mute themselves to avoid background noise interfering with the meeting.

Please disable your video.  We ask that all members of the public attending the meeting disable their video to limit distraction.

There is the opportunity at the end of the meeting for members of the public to ask questions.  We ask that all members of the public attending the meeting wait until the Chairman welcomes questions from the public.  You can enable your video and either raise your hand or electronic hand to make the Chairman aware you wish to ask a question, and unmute yourself when invited to ask a question.

Members of the Board will enable their video and will unmute themselves when invited to ask a question.

Thank you for agreeing to this etiquette and for your interest and attendance at our public Board meeting.
