The first thing you need to figure out is when you’ll host your call party. We suggest that after work or on the weekend is best, but it’s really up to you. It is important that you finish making calls by 8pm on a weekday, and 5pm on a weekend, to abide with Australian Telecommunications Standards. The ACF dialler tool won’t allow you to make calls after this time.

You should pick a venue that has a space big enough for everyone to sit together for a briefing and also has space for people to spread out — it can get pretty noisy once everyone is on the phone! Meeting rooms at your library, a quiet space in the local pub or your home are all good options.

If possible, decide on the day, time and location of your next calling party too - you’ll have great people joining you at your first calling party, so this is an awesome opportunity to invite the group together again for another.
