In preparation for the New England Fishery Management Council’s April 14-15, 2020 webinar meeting, the Council will hold a Public Training Webinar on Monday, April 13, 2020 at 10:30 a.m.

During this session, the Council staff will:

  • Conduct a “practice run” to help make sure everyone who will be participating in the full Council meeting will be familiar with navigating GoToWebinar; and
  • Show participants how to speak and be heard over the webinar during designated opportunities for public comment.

Register Now for the Public Training Webinar!

Here are some helpful instructions to make it easier to participate in the Public Training Webinar:

  • Don’t forget! If you want to speak during opportunities for public comment, you need to: (1) register for the webinar; and (2) actually “join” the webinar. People who call in by telephone without joining the webinar will be in listen-only mode. Those who take both steps – register and then join the webinar – will see the meeting screen and be able to click on a “raise hand” button, which will let the meeting organizer know you want to be unmuted to speak.
  • Here is the updated Remote Participation Guide with instructions for how to provide oral comments during the webinar meeting.
  • Having trouble with the training run? We’ll help!
