Telephone Meeting Agenda Friday 28 February 2013 - this Friday



This Community does not give medical advice. No members are authorized to give medical advice. Ask your doctor if you hear anything here that you think may be related to your treatment.



9:30am - 11:00am Eastern Standard Time (Queensland)

The formal phone-in meeting ends after 90 minutes.

The lines are kept open for an hour after that for members to informally chat.


Daylight savings times

Brisbane 9:30am

Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart: 10:30am

Adelaide, 10:00am

Perth 7:30am


Dial in

You must dial in - we do NOT dial you.


Phone numbers only in email.


Speaking time

We want many voices to be heard. If you are a member listed to speak below, the chair will probably expect you to take no more than about 5 minutes on presentation so there is plenty of time for others to respond.

Special Guest Speakers are invited to speak for 10-15 minutes, then field questions.



No noise

House - radio, TV, computer, pets, other phones, conversation

Yourself - mute button, or mouthpiece away from mouth

Phone - call waiting off (#43#), Mute button or hang up to leave the room. No mute button? ##4 to mute, ##5 to unmute. Cordless phone - don't carry, put on folded handkerchief to limit reverberation

Other calls - Please do NOT use call waiting or another line on the same phone to take another call - members around Australia are left listening to your 'hold' music until you return.


Speak clearly into mouthpiece in ordinary voice.

Say who you are when signing in, and each time you speak.

Listen for the gavel. The Chair may need to interrupt.

Help the secretary by later emailing details for the minutes.


You may hang up and sign in again as many times as necessary.

Sometimes we may have to restart the meeting - dial in again. With everyone calling at once you may need to try more than once.



From Jim Marshall


Late starters

Maybe you haven't had access to the agenda or you have late breaking news you would like to share. Tell the chairman here at the beginning of the meeting that you would like to speak, and he will fit you in probably later, perhaps right now if that suits.


Man 1

Allan Sudholz, about support groups in Western Australia.


Man 2

Gazza from Armidale will talk about his journey on hormone therapy.


From 10.15am approx

Some Men may have difficulty in asking a question. There is no such thing as a stupid question.

Have your question ready.

The committee has suggested setting this time aside from 10.15am Queensland time to give those members a chance to raise any issue or question.

We have had a number of men say they cannot get a word in. Today I hope will be your chance.
