In order to ensure the most success we are asking everyone to follow a couple of rules:

1. Don’t turn on your camera – it sucks up bandwidth and we really don’t need to see you.
2. Keep your microphone muted until you are prompted during a question and answer session during the presentation. This will cut down background noise substantially.
3. You can request to ask a question in the chat area in Zoom and wait to be prompted by the moderator.

We hope you can join us.
Clear skies!
