2. Please go to www.Zoom.us in advance of the meeting and download Zoom if you have not already done so in the past. Please do this prior to our scheduled time, to avoid any technical issues that may arise. This will enable us to begin on time and avoid delays associated with login problems.

By default, when the Zoom meeting starts, you will be on “mute“, meaning that no one else can hear you. In order to speak during the meeting, lower your mouse to the bottom of your screen. That will bring up a black band with various icons. On the lower left side, there will be a microphone icon. Clicking on that will unmute you when you want to speak. If you wish to ask a question or to comment without actually speaking, the "Chat" feature enables you to submit it in writing.

3. Please have your Zoom setup tested in advance, per the testing instructions you receive upon downloading and installing the software.

General Networking

Chapter meetings represent a golden opportunity. Please join us for an evening of networking with your peers from various disciplines. Our objective is to support each other, give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, share leads and discuss general intelligence about the market.

Practicing your 90-second announcement in the comfort of your own home is a good thing to do, but it is hardly enough. The missing element is a live audience. The additional benefit is that the live audience you will encounter at a meeting of The FENG will also be a friendly audience so you can improve this important tool.

Please bring:
- Make sure your screen name has your: First and Last Name
- Your 90-second elevator speech

Agenda

This is a great opportunity to meet new people, catch-up with old friends and discuss any issues you have on your mind.

The objective is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers from various disciplines, share job leads, ideas, and develop networking opportunities.

As always, this is a great opportunity to network, practice your "elevator" speech with fellow FENG members. Practicing your 90-second announcement in the comfort of your own home is a good thing to do, but it is hardly enough. The missing element is a live audience. The additional benefit is that the live audience you will encounter at a meeting of The FENG will also be a friendly audience so you can improve this important tool.

Please:
- Have ready your 90-second elevator speech
- Make sure your screen name has your First and Last Name.

The emphasis of our meetings is on networking – as that is what The FENG is all about. Therefore, we ask members who are currently working as well as those who are in transition to please attend and meet new friends while re-connecting with old friends!

Members currently in-transition (aka “Active”) are encouraged to tell us what assistance they need for their job search so that we may provide tips, contacts and information that can be of help.

Come prepared to present your 90-second introduction. The meeting will end early enough to allow for networking afterwards.

Please make sure your screen name includes your First and Last name.
