Sample meeting format additions for online meetings:
I ask everyone to please keep their microphones on mute for the duration of the meeting, unless you are sharing.
As directed by our Group Conscience, we encourage you all to keep your video on for the safety of all our members. I ask those of you who do not have your videos turned on, to do so now, so that we can verify these account names. You can switch your video off again afterwards if you are having network or signal issues.
Welcome, <phone number(s)> – can you please identify yourself by name in the next 5 minutes? For the safety of the group, every member must give a name. Thank you.
