Dealing with too many meetings

As testers, we get a lot of "FYI" meeting invites. When you find that you're getting invited to meetings and you're not sure why you need to be there, take a second and reply to the person who scheduled the meeting and ask "What's my role in the meeting?" This allows you to better know what's expected, and based on their response it also creates an opportunity for you to express that you might have higher priority work to do or to ask if you can dial-in instead of attending in person.
