Registering for Virtual Events:  
The link to register for a webinar for any IUB proceeding can be found on the Hearing and Meeting Calendar page. Webinar participants should register at least 24 hours in advance if possible. Upon registration an email will be sent containing the link to the webinar and other detailed information.

The IUB prefers participants to 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") 

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.

If a witness is providing testimony in an evidentiary hearing, it is required that the witness 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 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.
