  2:00 PM          INSTRUCTIONS & RELEASE FOR TIME FOR TEAMS 

As in the past, we want to help you create space for your project team to have "balcony time," to connect with one another about what you may be learning or thinking, and to have an opportunity to plan or dream or strategize together. We hear every year that this is one of the most valuable parts of our team leadership gatherings, and we hope you will be able to take advantage of this opportunity in whatever ways make most sense for your particular team and context. Some teams are planning to share a meal outside together, or to be distanced-but-together for this time. Others may find that Zoom or Teams or Meets provide a more appropriate connective platform. However you do this, please do plan to make intentional time to connect with your team. If we can be helpful in any way (setting up Zoom rooms, etc.), please don't hesitate to let us know.

 

4 OR 6 PM        SOCIAL & NETWORKING (optional)

Speed Networking: This is a structured and fast (but not too fast) paced networking activity allowing participants to make meaningful connections. Although this is typically in a series of brief one-on-one exchanges, we will offer a variety of settings including groups of four, three, and one-on-one for 3-5 minute sessions. This activity is 60 minutes or less. If you signed up at registration but no longer want, or are able to attend OR if you did not sign up but would like to attend please let us know.

Good question! We'd like to help facilitate participant-led conversations. We'd be happy to offer affinity mini-gatherings. We could continue to offer virtual networking opportunities. What happens next, though, is up to you. Please be sure to share your feedback and desires for the future on the survey.
