IUB Virtual Events Schedule and Registration Instructions

The IUB has created virtual registration instructions intended for parties to an IUB proceeding or meeting, and for participants who plan to speak or present at an IUB scheduled event. Anyone wishing to only observe a proceeding or meeting may access the event via the IUB's video livestreaming events calendar. Electronic meetings are conducted pursuant to Iowa Code section 21.8, and the IUB may schedule a webinar for public proceedings where attendance in person is not possible or practical for parties who wish to participate.

Registering for Scheduled Virtual Events  
The attendee link to register for a webinar for an IUB proceeding will be included in the event listing on the IUB's Hearing and Meeting Calendar page. Webinar  participants should register at least 24 hours in advance if possible. Upon registration attendees will receive an email containing the link to the webinar/web seminar and other detailed information.

The IUB uses Webex to host its virtual meetings. If you have not used the meeting platform prior to attending an IUB virtual meeting, you are encouraged to download the client application for your device before the meeting by going to Cisco Webex at https://www.webex.com/downloads.html.

The IUB prefers participants register using your first and last name, followed by your company's name or commonly used acronym, for ease of identification. Example: Don Tormey - IUB (Last name field would be entered as "Tormey - IUB") 

NOTE: Parties to a proceeding that is not already scheduled with a remote participation option should file a request to appear remotely in the appropriate docket if they cannot appear in person.

If using your computer audio option, please use an audio headset or use the phone dial-in option. Don't attempt to use your device microphone and speakers at the same time as it may cause feedback or pick up ambient sound that will affect the ability of everyone on the webinar to clearly hear the presenter.

Please keep yourself muted unless speaking; if the Board Members cannot hear you, they will indicate that you are muted and ask you to turn on your microphone.

A witness providing testimony in an evidentiary hearing is required to use a webcam to allow the Board and parties to view the witness during testimony. Make sure the computer camera is uncovered and the witness is sitting directly in front of the camera and can be seen clearly. A wall or closed background is best. Avoid windows or direct light in the background.

Other parties to a proceeding who appear virtually also should have access to a webcam. 

Additional Information
If you are a party to an IUB proceeding, IUB technical staff will "promote" you from an attendee to a panelist after you have joined the virtual meeting. Panelists will be able to control their own microphone and camera. At the time you are promoted, IUB technical staff will do a microphone and camera check to make sure you are connected properly. To allow time for this audio/video check, please join the virtual meeting at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. 

Cisco Webex offers extensive online help documentation for its meeting platform. If you are experiencing difficulties using virtual meeting software, please visit the Cisco Webex Help Center at https://help.webex.com/en-us/.
