Conference call etiquette
In order to decrease background noise
·        If you are using a head set – take out dangling earrings
·        Some speaker phone set ups work will but the call quality will be much better if you are holding the phone
·        Press *6 to mute your phone if you must leave the call or have other noise occurring.
·        Avoid the following as they do create noise in the call
o       Shuffling papers unnecessarily
o       Typing unnecessarily
·        Also important before the call
o       Take pets (esp dogs) away from the phone call area
o       Shut off fax or move away from fax if possible

During the call
·        Please say your name before you speak
·        Try not to talk over others, jot yourself a note so you remember your question.  We will try to allow time for all to give input.
·        Give everyone a chance - Allow time for others to speak – we would like to keep the meeting time to one hour
