Meeting Etiquette

By attending the meeting either virtually or face to face you are agreeing that you will not record in either video or audio format the meeting in whole or part.

In keeping with ELFT’s values, we ask all participants to respect the Chair and the speakers at the meeting, and to listen with interest and an open mind.

Meeting considerations if you are joining by Zoom:

  • Please log on ten minutes before the start of the meeting if possible to ensure a good connection

  • Please keep your microphone on the ‘mute’ setting during the meeting

  • The meeting moderators may switch off your video feed to reduce bandwidth. You will still be able to see all active participants

  • If you are experiencing technical issues, please feel free to leave the meeting and rejoin.

For the best experience, we would recommend downloading the Zoom client at Download Zoom>>

We will show closed captions (subtitles) for those who find hearing what is being said during the Zoom meeting a challenge. Instructions for showing/hiding subtitles can be found here.
