No, actually,  it's forward. The clocks in North America that is. 

Once again - too soon, I say - most of the U.S. and numerous other political entities in North America will move clocks forward by one hour this Sunday, March 12th. (Not the state of Arizona. No idea why.) 

This is to ensure that if you have participants in your TC from other continents / hemispheres, they'll have a 50-50 chance of missing the next meeting. ("Wait! Wasn't the meeting at... oh Drat!) 

This should resolve itself when Europe and parts of the middle east and north Africa change their clocks across the weekend of 25-26th March.

There's a useful chart showing who adjusts their clocks when, here:


And a time calculator at: 


There are others around as well. So feel free to share with your TCs as necessary to get through this annual fire drill smoothly. 

Best -
