Code of Conduct:
While attending a virtual conference you are expected to uphold the values of the Junior Master Gardener program. Using the chat feature in the meetings is a time to ask pertinent questions related to the topic. It is not intended to express frustrations, vent any vulgarities, or dominate the speaker’s time. If at any time you are allowed to speak, the same rules apply. If any of these unfavorable behaviors are demonstrated, you will be removed from the conference.
A virtual training will be conducted to allow you to check your connection and ensure you are able to hear and see the events of the conference. We will cover Zoom features such as using the chat box to ask questions and we will show you how to navigate the Conference Portal. A pre-conference virtual training will be held on Zoom in the week prior to conference start. It is highly recommended that you attend this to check your equipment and/or need a quick refresher on how to navigate the Zoom online platform.
