  2. At 20 minutes before your presentation (or as soon as you log in it is less than 20 minutes before your presentation), send a message to the host in the chat window that you have arrived for your presentation. Be sure to include your name and if you are dialing in via landline, your phone number.
  3. A host will promote you as a speaker/panelist and then to a co-host and send you a chat message that you’ve been added as a speaker/panelist.
  4. Note that you may be promoted to a co-host sooner than 20 minutes before your presentation if one of our staff sees you have logged in. This is to facilitate smooth transitions among speakers and enable us to do a sound and camera check during an earlier break if needed.

  6. At the time of your presentation, the moderator will introduce you and read your biography.
  7. You can unmute yourself, and you may begin your presentation.
