On January 8, the FHWA made a presentation to NCUTCD  members summarizing some of the key changes in the MUTCD NPA.  FHWA did not share the slides from the presentation and they are not available at this time for distribution.  FHWA has stated that they intend to make additional improvements and refinements to the presentation and hope to make it available to the public at some point in the future. We will share information about its availability on this News page if/when it become available.

If you want to make a change to the sessions/meetings that you registered to attend, go to your registration confirmation e-mail and click on the “View your registration” link near the bottom. That should take you to your registration on the Cvent website, where you can select other sessions/meetings. If attending a different technical committee than one in which you’re already a member of or selected, send a short note to that committee chair saying you plan to attend so you’re not in the waiting room all day. Links to TC chair e-mails can be seen at https://ncutcd.org/technical-committees/.

Keep the following in mind when logging into your technical committee meeting:

  • Click on the link in the confirmation email sent to you from Richard Moeur through Cvent.
  • On the next screen, you should see a screen asking you to sign in to the Zoom service with your e-mail address and password. The password in this case is the password for the Zoom account you have, not the 6-digit session password in the confirmation email.
    • Repeating: Do not enter the 6-digit session password in the password field on the Zoom “Sign In” screen. Use your Zoom account password.
    • Another option is to log into your Zoom account prior to clicking on the link in the confirmation email.
  • If the email and password are correct, you will be admitted to a waiting room where you will see a screen with a message indicating you will be admitted soon. The chair (or other co-host) will admit you as soon as they can.  If you have logged in after the meeting has started and the chair is busy managing the meeting, it may take a little longer to be admitted.  If you have been in the waiting room for more than 5 minutes and are a member of that technical committee, send an email to your technical committee listserve. 
  • Once you are logged into your technical committee meeting in Zoom, you need to make sure that both your first and last name show on the participant list.  Once in the meeting, you can rename yourself.  There are two ways to do this:
    • Click on the three dots in your video image and select “Rename.”
    • Find your name in the list of participants, select it, click the “More” link, then select “Rename.”
  • This link from Zoom provides more information about how to join a Zoom meeting: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-meeting.

During our meetings this month, we will have a lot of people that are logging into our Zoom meetings.  When you log in, make sure that your ID shows both your first and last name.  Order is not critical, it can be first and last or last and first.  Participants that show only a phone number will be disconnected early in the meeting.  Participants who do not show both first and last name will be disconnected next.  We will be checking participants names against the registration list and disconnecting those names that are not on the list as well.  Thank you for your attention to this detail.  Gene

Our Webmaster, Marc Jacobson, has set up a News tab on our website so that the Chair and Executive Secretary can share information quickly.  Given how many meetings we are holding this month and the number of issues associated with the NPA, the News tab will be the primary means of sharing information with our members and friends.  Check this page often as we will not be sharing all of this information through email.
