Please bear with us as this is new to all of us. As many of you have heard, there have been reports of “Zoom-bombing”. If something like this happens during the meeting, we will do our best to control the situation, but if it gets out of hand, the meeting will be immediately adjourned due to disruption.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
