Those wishing to provide oral testimony for a virtual meeting must register in advance via the testimony pilot project registration link on the meeting agenda. Given constraints with the online format of our meetings, individuals wishing to orally testify must register no later than the registration closing time as noted on the agenda. It is highly recommended that written testimony be submitted in addition to registering to provide oral testimony. Oral testimony will be limited to three (3) minutes per testifier.

Individuals providing oral testimony at a virtual meeting will need to connect through the Zoom application. When signing up, please note that the name used upon registration may be included in the meeting minutes. After completing the registration form, oral testifiers will receive an email confirmation with the necessary meeting information and connection instructions.

Upon connection to the scheduled meeting, individuals registered to provide oral testimony will be placed in a viewing room where they are able to view the meeting and microphones will be automatically muted. When called upon to begin their testimony, the meeting host will ask the testifier to unmute their microphone. Microphones will be muted upon conclusion of providing testimony.
