  • If you are having trouble connecting via Skype for Business, please dial the phone number and conference ID, and we'll walk you through setup during one of the preparation sessions
  • Attendees are also encouraged to join the preparation sessions, and those who have never used Skype before are required
  • You may only connect with an external microphone (puck, headset, microphone and speaker combo, earbuds etc.). Internal laptop microphones will not be allowed, as they cause echo during calls and at times disable the call entirely. You will be asked to leave the web version if you join via an internal microphone; you may instead join via a telephone or cell phone. Please make arrangements to ensure you have an external microphone.
