Attend the Virtual Meeting on Teams LIVE

How to Use Microsoft Teams LIVE

You don't have to have the Microsoft Teams desktop app to attend, just click the "Click here to Join" link above and it will direct you to the LIVE Event online. To attend the Disorientation or Stranding Workshops, please use the same link above. ***NOTE: Meetings and Workshops are held in the Eastern Standard Time zone.

When you click on the link it will prompt you to choose between downloading the Windows app or to watch on the web instead (for the best experience, we recommend using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge for your web browser). Please test the link prior to the meeting on Tuesday and Contact Us for assistance if needed. If the link works successfully, a message saying "The live event hasn't start" will be on a black screen.

***Some folks have had some issues signing in, if you receive a message telling you to sign in with a different account, you will need to sign-in as anonymous.***
