|An Auckland convenor (person who owns the PIN used for the meeting) requests parties in Wellington and Invercargill to quickly jump on a call to discuss project implications of a recent event. The convenor gives the other parties the PIN to use and depending on who should pay for the call, directs the participants to call into the conference via 083032 (each users pays their own participation) or 083033 (convenor pays for all).|
