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.

Have your question ready.





Other new stories or updates

Formal end


The Chair will declare the formal part of the teleconference closed at his discretion, perhaps around 11am. The teleconference lines will be kept open until at least 11:30 for anyone who wishes to continue discussions, update his health, or just chat.
