What Is Your Preferred Teleconference Day & Hour?

Dear Colleagues,

With the W3C Technical Plenary event in Vancouver behind us, we’re excited to canvas our intrepid community group for a Zoom teleconference time. We’d like to propose meeting weekly, at least for a few months to give each of us a full opportunity to get our concerns expressed and on the record. Our teleconferences will be held on Zoom and will be minuted using IRC as is customary in W3C activities.

Below there are nine suggested weekdays and hours where we could hold regular weekly Zoom calls for our A11yEdge Community Group. All times are specified for Boston, as is also customary for W3C scheduling. A link to aid in converting that time to your local timezone is also included. The provided links begin on Monday 7 November, because this will be the day when North America and Europe (where most of us live and work) will be back in sync following our autumnal asyncronous returns to standard time.  For each suggested time please simply note as one of the following three options:

*       Can and prefer
*       Can
*       Cannot

As we welcome sharing this invitation widely, we’re also providing a tenth option for our friends on the Pacific rim to request a more conducive meeting time.  If that’s you, please indicate your hours of UTC offset. If there are indeed several individuals from Pacific rim time zones, we will indeed try to work out a second hour for at least a couple of weeks in each month.

Please send your choices to and we’ll collate your responses and announce what the group has collectively chosen during the week of Monday 31 October; and we’ll begin meeting the week following.

All times are in EST, with a link to a World Clock so you can see the time in your time zone:

(1)  Mondays at 12:00 PM EST
(2)  Mondays at 1:00 PM EST
(3) Tuesdays at 1:00 PM EST
(4) Thursdays at 9:00 AM EST
(5) Thursdays at 10:00 AM EST
(6) Thursdays at 11:00 AM EST
(7) Thursdays at 12:00 PM EST
(8) Thursdays at 1:00 PM EST
(9) Fridays at 9:00 AM EST
(10)    I live on the Pacific rim and would appreciate meeting times more conducive to my time zone. Please consider providing additional teleconference options. My UTC offset is: ______

Please feel free to forward and share this post with anyone you believe might wish to participate.

Looking forward to working with you more directly via teleconference soon,

– Janina
