If the Zoom meeting disconnects

If connectivity to the meeting is lost, you will need to rejoin the Zoom meeting via the same method you originally used. If your internet connection is unstable, dialing in by phone and continuing by audio-only is good other option to stay connected to the meeting (see phone number and meeting ID sent in your registration instructions). Watch your email for any possible updates about the Board meeting if technical difficulties or security issues arise before or during the meeting. 

Technical Issues

If you have any meeting questions or issues with connecting to the meeting please contact Jared Smith at jsmith@montana.edu or 406.449.9152 for assistance.
