A: All sessions will have the ability for members of the committee to speak and ask questions. When the Chairman asks for any questions or comments, attendees will have the option to comment or ask questions by “raising a hand” or typing a question into the Q&A window located on the right side of the screen. All audience members will be automatically muted for the session. To “raise a hand”, participants must click on the hand icon on the right side of the screen. Once the moderator announces your name and asks for your comment/question you will be unmuted to speak, and will be muted again when done speaking.
