Here are some tips for calling in:
- When you first call in please announce yourself with your name and identify yourself with a designation such as retiree, representing an organization or other affiliation.
- When you first call in, you may hear a lot of talking, at some point the Chair of the meeting will ask if anyone is calling in – speak up and identify yourself.
- When you first call in, you may be put on hold which means the call in phone system is not activated yet. If this happens please wait for the official meeting time, and then call or text Ed Shackelford at 720-353-3775 – texting is preferred as Ed’s phone may be muted for the meeting.
- The * 6 (Star 6) buttons on your phone will allow you to mute and unmute your phone, your voice and the background noises in your room. If you are not talking, please mute your phone. It is amazing how much background noise is picked up from those calling in, from coughing to typing to barking dogs. These unnecessary sounds are then projected into the committee meeting room disrupting the conversation – so please generously use * 6.
