Q. Do I have to be on the HappyHour call the entire time?
A. No. Please feel free to call in even if it is just to say hello and stay for five minutes, ten minutes or the whole call....phone from anywhere...and feel free to do whatever you want or need to do while you are listening. However, PLEASE use STAR6 (*6) to mute your phone and STAR6 (*6) to come back off of mute to help keep background noise to a minimum when others are speaking. Even light breathing by a few people can seem loud on a teleconference line!
Q. How do I let you know I'd like time to talk on a HappyHour call?

Q. How do I get to know the other HappyHour members?
A. If you are new, you can introduce yourself on a call, your first call or your tenth call or your hundredth call..or not at all if you prefer. We encourage you to introduce yourself when you are comfortable because the sooner you do, the sooner you will feel a true part of the community. It takes a little time to know the members and their stories...and it is very rewarding to hang in there until you do. Great, life-long friendships have been created on the HappyHour call.
