Online Meeting Guidance
We suggest that your shared name is your first name and initial only, or just your initials if you prefer.
Be mindful of what is in the background of your camera.
Think about what you share. Perhaps some very personal details are best saved for your sponsor or close friend.
Don't feel pressured into using your camera if you prefer not to.
Make sure that your microphone is muted when you are not speaking. This helps to avoid distracting noises for others.
Keep your focus on the meeting so as not to unintentionally offend those sharing or turn off your camera if you need to nip off.
Remain patient. Sometimes the technology can be patchy and there can be lag (delays) in a participant's broadcast.
