Can I participate during the meeting?
As a member-owner, we value your input. Because of the large number of attendees, all members will begin the meeting with their cameras and microphones automatically turned off. You will be asked to vote at certain times by “raising your hand.” This is a feature within Zoom that lets others know you are participating when prompted. To digitally raise your hand, click the “Participants” button at the bottom center of your Zoom screen, and then click the button labeled “Raise Hand.” You can also find additional information on this function here. If you join the meeting by phone, dial *9 to raise your hand. Our leadership and moderators will explain when this option will be available to you during the meeting.
