Meet-Me Telephone Conferencing

A Meet-Me Conference allows six individuals to dial into a conference bridge. With a bridge, the caller pays the long distance charges. To request a Meet-Me conference bridge, contact the HelpDesk (x6-8555) at least one week prior to your conference call.  Please include the date of the call.

Only six people can attend a Meet-Me conference at a time. If you need to include more than six people in the conference, please mention this when you contact the HelpDesk.

The attendees pay for all long distance charges and all attendees can enter or leave the conference as they wish. A short tone will announce the arrival or departure of any guest.
