Here’s a reminder of the guidelines for participating in a Town Hall Meeting:
● You are expected to do the reading and post a question for the speaker by the end of the day preceding the town hall. Please bring two copies of your question so that the topic coordinators have a copy and you have a copy of your question handy in case you're called upon to ask it.
● Out of respect for our speakers, laptops must be closed and phones put away during town hall presentations. Please bring some sort of low-tech means for taking notes.
