If an Order of the Commission indicates that a hearing will be held remotely, the hearing will be held via Webex as a Webex Event.
A link to view the hearing will be posted on the main page of the Commission’s website the day before the hearing is scheduled to start. Commission hearings can also be accessed on the Commission’s YouTube Channel
Attorneys and witnesses participating in a remote expert witness hearing will receive an invitation from the Commission’s IT staff via email to logon to the Webex Event. Logging on to Webex as panelist allows a participant to be seen and heard on the Webex broadcast. Logging on to the Webex as an attendee allows a participant to view the hearing, but the attendee will not appear or be heard on the Webex broadcast.
Attorneys and witnesses who will appear on a Webex hearing are encouraged to contact the Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a technical check of their video and audio connections. Subject to the availability of our staff, the Commission will provide technical checks to hearing participants prior to the hearing. In addition, the Webex Event for all hearings is opened at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the hearing each day. Panelists should log on to the Webex Event at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the hearing to test audio and video connections.
Below are some tips to avoid common audio and video problems:
For assistance once a hearing has started, please email email@example.com. Please note, assistance is limited. Technical checks are encouraged prior to the first time you attend a Webex hearing.
