NOVEMBER 15 MEETING
CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER PREDICTIONS
CONFERENCE CALL MEETING SCHEDULED INSTEAD
For the first time ever, we have canceled our monthly meeting.
Ice Predictions are making it sound treacherous.
As important as our gathering together is, we don’t want to take chances with anyone’s safety.
BECAUSE THIS IS A VERY EMOTIONALLY CHALLENGING TIME OF YEAR, WE ARE SCHEDULING A CONFERENCE CALL, WHICH YOU MAY ATTEND FROM YOUR OWN HOME.
This is a great opportunity for those who can’t make in-person meetings to connect or reconnect. Our TCF Family members who are at home with children or have moved too far or can’t make the drive are definitely invited to attend.
The same Meeting Room Guidelines Apply.
Respect – Confidentiality – Sharing Experiences – No Judgement – Giving Everyone who want to talk the opportunity to do so – Trying not to go off on unrelated tangents
We will be on available on the call from 7:00 – 9:00, same as in the meeting room
You come in when you can and leave when you have to
Here is how it works
Dial (605) 472-5319
You will be asked for an Access code
510107 and then the # sign
There will be an announcement
There will be a “DING” sound that you are entering.
Wait for a pause in the conversation, if one is going on, and then say hello and your name – and you can even introduce yourself by saying your loved one’s name too:
“Hi – Its Bettie-Jeanne, Robyn’s mom here “
If you are in a quiet room with no background noise then you don’t have to “mute yourself” after coming in….
IF you are in a room where there is a crying baby, barking dogs, loud TV, washing dishes, going potty, then
PRESS * (star) 6 to MUTE YOURSELF
after you have introduced yourself and had a chance to say hello
When you want to be heard – to share, talk –
PRESS * (star) 6 again to UNMUTE
AND WHEN YOU ARE DONE
* (star) 6 again to MUTE
There is usually a half second delay after unmuting
When you speak, it may be good to say your name again, so we know who is talking.
“Bettie-Jeanne Here. I, too, have that concern. Thanksgiving coming is freaking me out. What do you all do about it?”
If you want to check out FreeConferenceCall ahead of time-
We’ve been using this on a National Level for Chapter Leader Meetings, Facilitator Meetings (there is one tonight for those who might be interested in helping to facilitate at our chapter, we would love to have you join in- there is info on our FB East Of the River Wall.
I would appreciate an intended RSVP IF you are planning or thinking about attending the Conference Call. I want to keep those people in the loop or any changes or additions.
We may consider adding this to our meetings if it is well received.
Sometimes phone calls fit into our lives better.
