The Call is most often answered as soon as it is given, unless the nature of The Call is such that preparation or timing are involved. An example of preparations might involve the human giving The Call needing to gather information or poll other humans, essentially preparing themselves for the conference. An example of timing might be where The Call involves a conference with several humans and a convenient time when they could all experience a bit of missing time needs to be arranged. The nature of The Call is such that the group called, whether in Service-to-Self or Service-to-Other, does not want the moment to pass. Delays can result in a change of heart, so The Call is answered promptly.
