How do you recite the pledge of allegiance in a remote meeting?

Posted by Sloane Dell'Orto | April 7, 2020

We've fielded some questions around how to handle the pledge of allegiance, if you are used to starting your meetings by reciting it but are now required to meet remotely. Having multiple people on speaker trying to recite the same thing aloud from different locations can be a bit disorganized.

So we thought, what if you shared your screen at the beginning of the meeting and played a video of the pledge of allegiance? You could keep everyone muted, but they could hear it and recite it (without everyone hearing each other). And since all attendees are facing their computers, they would all be facing the flag. :)

Here are a few options we found on youtube:

Pledge of Allegiance, narrated by Don LaFontaine, Music by The US Army Band
Pledge of Allegiance, recited by children
Pledge of Allegiance, recited by John Wayne (my personal fave) 😍
