Thanks so much for initiating this meeting, Sharon et al (and nice to see you in NYC last week, Sharon!).  Though I haven’t had a moment to respond to the previous posts, I have been following and hope to sign on to the meeting on the 17th if it’s still OK to jump in.  Are there limits to the number that can be accommodated for the webinar?  I believe you are resending because there is still room for folks to join, but didn’t want to assume.  Thanks!

Subject: SAVE THE DATE State Center Webinar Meeting


Dear CFB Listserv:


Apparently many of you did not receive the email I sent last week here is a more detailed save-the-date:


June 17, 3 to 4 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.


You will need to be at a computer and can use either a headset with mic (best) or a phone for your audio.  


I will send a link out for all of you to use to access and apologies to those who cannot attend (I think there are 2). If you register when you get the email you will receive reminder emails from the system.


 I will be able to provide a recording of the meeting for those of you who were unable to participate live.


I'll try to get the link out tomorrow, Friday, or over weekend.  


Apologies again if the lapse in communication was my fault.  I am having a hard time with a new email system at Simmons when I am on my iPad and I may well have sent the message from an email that is not subscribed to this list without realizing it.

Hi, All, 


I heard from a few of you that there is interest in trying a virtual state-center meeting and so created a Doodle poll to collect possible meeting times.


To indicate which dates/times you could meet please complete this poll:


Since I tried to squeeze in times before ALA and some are coming up quickly, please try to do the poll in the coming couple of days.


The idea for this meeting came out of requests from some coordinators for a summary of the meeting and the feeling of others (me included) that some ideas came up at the exchange that we might explore further. 


I hope that a couple of those interested would volunteer to draft an agenda, send it out on the listserv for additional items, Please add a note to comments at the Doodle poll if you are interested in volunteering.  (I'll focus on the technical assistance during meeting.)  


And to state what is likely the obvious:  A "Go-to-Webinar" meeting happens online, at your computer.  Ideally you would have a headset with microphone (not bluetooth) but you could also call in for audio to a number you would be provided when you register.


Many thanks,
