We last networked online in July and it was such a success that you told us you wanted more. It wasn't exactly like meeting in person, but we've come up with a way to get pretty darn close.
In the past, we had "Just Us" meetings with no speaker or presentation and just our members networking and sharing experiences, catching up on who was doing what. Those were some of the best times we had. Everyone learned a lot and had a great time doing so. Here's the plan:
Please turn your camera on when you log in.
It's much harder to network with a person when all you can see
is a name on a blank screen
We'll all start out unmuted and say Hi! as you enter.
Please be mindful of what is going on at your end and,
if there is noise (I have a very verbal cat), please mute yourself.
We ask that you respect those speaking so everyone get a turn.
Like we did at all our networking meetings, we'll have
each person introduce themselves, talk briefly about
who they are, what they're doing and any upcoming plans.
We'll then open the meeting to anything you want to discuss.
Put your comment, idea, topic, question into the Chat box.
We'll get to your topic in the order it was entered.
This is an experiment with lots of "ifs" and moving parts.
If it get so noisy it distracts from the conversation,
we'll adjust the format. ~ Should be FUN!
Sure wish I could figure out how to transport a cocktail to ya'll
Maybe Jared's 3-D printer?
