Virtual Office Hours

Join IES program officers for drop-in discussions and question/answer sessions. Please feel free to attend as many office hours 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 office hours 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.

How do I request accommodations?
Send an email using this link and tell us what accommodation(s) you would like to request (e.g., TTY, ASL, CART) as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the session.

How do the sessions work?
These office hours are an opportunity for participants to ask questions. Do not expect a formal presentation from the IES program officers hosting the session. You may join a session at any time and stay as long as you like. Simply log into the meeting using the appropriate link or by phoning in.

The session I'm interested in has already passed. What should I do?
These sessions are not recorded. So if you miss a session, we recommend that you click on the "Email me details" link and then scroll to the bottom of the automated response to see the contact information for the session's program officer(s). Then email the program officer(s).

About Microsoft Teams
