They are similar to face-to-face meetings, but connect through the phone or computer. For phone meetings, you’ll dial a number and enter a pin number to join the meeting. Then the moderator will tell when it is appropriate to speak and lead you through the format. An online meeting functions like a chat room or video meeting. Again, a moderator will lead you through the meeting. Each telephone and online meeting has its own practices and protocols. These will become clear when you attend. Thousands of OA members participate in these meetings.
