Not sure if you are a member of the Nationwide Leadership Council?
Are you a local coordinator of a local tea party or 912 groups? Then you are a member of the Nationwide Leadership Council.
Why do we have these calls each week?
Tea Party Patriots is a grassroots, bottom-up organization. Our best ideas come from thelocal coordinators and grassroots supporters. Before deciding on a national course of action unless it is extremely time sensitive information, Tea Party Patriots National Coordinators run ideas by the Local Coordinators and Nationwide Leadership Council for refinement and approval.
What happens on the call?
Generally, in the first 30 minutes the National Coordinators give an update from the national scene, announcements are made, proposed projects are thrown out, and legislative updates are given. We do our very best to get the announcements out of the way in the very beginning. Next, we discuss any upcoming projects or ideas. This is an open discussion and anyone can participate in it and all are encouraged to do so. Then we open the call for general questions. You can ask any question here that you need answered. We also do polls to get your feedback during the call and so you can see what others are thinking as well.
How do I participate? We use gotowebinar for these calls. You can listen from your phone or from the speakers on your computer.
For Go to Webinar:
You need to register for the call by filling out this form: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/271141385
After filling out the form, you will receive an email with a link to join the call.
Click that link and GotoWebinar will install software on your computer to allow you to join the call.
After the software is on your computer, you can do one of 2 things to hear and talk on the call:
1. You can listen and participate on the call via your computer. You will need speakers and a microphone or a headset that has earphone(s) and a microphone. If you don't have a microphone you can listen on your computer, but you will not be able to participate on the call.
2. *Recommended for better sound quality: You can click a button that says listen on the phone. When you click that you will receive a phone number, the access code for the call, and a pin. That pin is crucial. Without that pin, you will not be able to unmute yourself on the call.
If you can hear the call but cannot figure out how to unmute or how to ask questions using the software, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
