Study, Support & Action – Action Items
1) – REVIEW CAUCUS LOGISTICS
Registration for the caucus is now closed, and we are no longer able to run late registration because we have reached maximum capacity for the number of participants who can join the video conference calls for the caucus. If you know folks who wanted to join the caucus but cannot do so, please encourage them to sign up for our mailing list. We will be offering a foundations course in our approach this fall, and we offer various online courses throughout the year.
- Registration for is required to participate in the caucus.
- There are four meetings of caucus. You will get the most out of these meetings if you participant in all of them, or commit to watching recordings of meetings that you miss.
- Live meetings are: June 21, June 28, July 5, July 12 from 4-6pm ET (1-3pm PT). Notice that the meetings are weekly on Sunday.
- Meetings will be recorded and available for participant viewing during the week following each date. We will take recordings offline after a week, due to the intimate nature of group sharing.
- You may participate without attending each meeting live.
- Study materials will be recommended for each session. Please allow approximately 30 minutes to one hour per meeting for outside work and reflection.
- Study materials will remain up on our site for two weeks following the last caucus meeting, after which we will mail you a PDF copy of the materials we shared.
2) – TAKE ACTION TO BE SURE YOU RECEIVE ALL COURSE MAILINGS
- Please add “email@example.com” to your list of contacts.
Workshop mailings (after your confirmation email) will come from Mailchimp bulk email service, which is sometimes sent to spam (or your Promotions tab, if you use Gmail.) Adding “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your list of contacts prevents this from happening.
3) – TAKE ACTION TO RECEIVE A LOGIN FOR JOINING MEETINGS
