  • In order to use our time wisely, we will be present both physically and mentally, starting and ending our meetings on time.
  • We will communicate effectively and be concise when we speak—encouraging respectful participation and inviting a wide range of perspectives, while managing our own “air time” to ensure everyone has the chance to speak.
