It’s all about courtesy.  As these calls grow and we have more and more participants, it’s time to give a couple of little pointers to help everyone get the most from the Conference Calls.

  1. Make sure you are a couple of minutes early – the calls need to start on-time.  Why should those who call-in on time be made to wait for the late-comers?
  2. Mute your phone – it’s real easy.  The rest of the listeners don’t want to hear your family discussion!
  3. Be prepared.  If you want to contribute to the call, talk to the host beforehand and make sure you have your contribution fully prepared.
  4. Do not use the calls to carry on personal conversations with others on the call.
If we all follow these simple little rules, EVERYONE will get so much more out of the calls.
