 Tips for our meeting and other online meetings:

  • Use a device with a camera if possible so you can better participate. If you need to use your phone, you can still speak up, but we would love to see you on the screen. Also your phone will not show the slides. We’ll strive to provide other channels for information, but we love participation.
  • Since we plan to be on the screen, dress for success! Be groomed and dressed as you would usually attend NoCoNet.
  • When not speaking, keep your microphone muted. 
  • Make sure your name is displayed. You can set it by clicking "more" by your name in the "participants" window, and selecting "rename".
  • Display the "Chat" window (icon at the bottom of the main screen.) Information will often be shared through this window, and it is often used to ask questions. 
  • Also in the Chat window, you can network by sending private messages to other participants.
  • We can provide proof of meeting attendance for Unemployment benefit claims. Email us!
