Virtual Office Hours

Join IES program officers for discussions and question/answer sessions. Attend as many sessions as you would like!

How do I attend?
You can either use the information on this page, or you can click on the "Email me details" in the list of sessions for any of the sessions you are interested in. These links have preset subject lines to help ensure your message is processed correctly. After you send the email, you will receive an automated response with the login details, the name and contact information for the session leader(s), and any other details. If you need additional assistance, please use this link.

How do the sessions work?
Typically, they are a Q&A format. For some sessions, the IES program officer may have slides to share, but the purpose of the hour is to address your questions and to allow you to hear answers to questions posed by others.

Simply log into the session using the appropriate link below or by phoning in. We have disabled videos for participants to help ensure more people can easily participate.

If you would like to send questions beforehand, please click on the "Email me details" link for the session you are interested in. You will receive an email with details about the session including contact information for the program officer(s) running the session.

The session I'm interested in already passed. What should I do?
We recommend you still click on the "Email me details" link so that you know whom to contact.

How do I request accommodations?
If you would like to request accommodations (e.g., TTY, ASL, CART), please use this link to request accommodations as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the services are needed.

About Microsoft Teams
IES uses Microsoft Teams for these sessions. You do not have to have a Teams account to attend the sessions. You can phone in or use the link provided. For information about how to use Microsoft Teams without an account, please refer to Microsoft's documentation.
