5:00 pm CST might be unsuitable for ET time zone
When planning a call between Central Standard Time and Eastern Time, you need to consider time difference between these time zones. CST is 2 hours behind of ET.
It is 5:00 pm in CST. This does not fall within the span of usual working time between 11:00 am and 6:00 pm in ET, but it still might be suitable to arrange a meeting, since it would be 7:00 pm in ET, which is between 7:00 am and 11:00 pm ET time.
