Zoom Meeting Tips:
You will arrive at the meeting waiting room and the moderator will admit you to the meeting.
All participants will be muted until the Q and A session at the end of the meeting. If you have a question, you can raise your hand in zoom and the moderator will un-mute you. You can also type a question to everyone or to a specific person in the meeting from the chat box.
See you there!
