Indus Etiquette

We are starting a few in person meetings; let’s remember the spirit of Indus is about new friendships!

Indus thrives when our members are active and participate. Please ensure that you complete 10(ten) attendance points and 2 (two) participation points in a year from 1st April to 31st March. 7 (seven) attendances should be completed by December.

Few gentle reminders:

For meetings at member’s homes (in person meetings)

  1. Please      wear your badge at the meeting so mingling is easier.

  2. If you can      host a meeting at your house, please inform the Vice Presidents or any      member of the Board if you are able to offer your house.

  3. Since      wearing a mask is no longer mandatory, let’s be responsible, avoid      attending if you are unwell.

  4. Only tea      and biscuits should be provided by the hostess. Being      a hostess should be easy and the focus should be on the speaker!

  5. Please      ensure that your cell phones are in silent mode or switched off .(in      person & zoom meetings)

  6. Meetings      begin at 11.15 a.m. and end at 12.15 p.m. Your attendance will not      be counted if you come in after 11.15 a.m. or leave      before 12.15 p.m.

  7. Indus      should in no case be used as a forum for publicity. It is strictly      forbidden to use the directory to build e-mails or phones listings to      advertise.

For Zoom Meetings

  1. All      members to mention their name on the screen in the following order:      Surname, First name, Indus membership number.

  2. Keep your      videos on at all times, unless advised by the Chairlady.

  3. Do      not UNMUTE yourself for the entire duration      of every meeting.

  4. Be presentable while      attending a zoom meeting.

  5. Please maintain some      decorum even in online meetings.

  • Some members were seen       eating or lying back and some even dozing!

  • Some were seen attending       the meetings in their night clothes.

  1. If you have to do anything other than listen to the speaker,      kindly turn your video off.

  2. Zoom meetings      begin at 11.15 a.m. and end at 12.15 p.m. Your attendance will not      be counted if you come in after 11.15 a.m. or leave      before 12.15 p.m.
