    2. We have officially adopted an Anti-Harassment Policy.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to community helpers

Virtual Connect Update –

  • Things are going pretty well, at this point we are reaching out to presenters.  Email to list servs to have people get registered
  • Instructions are going out to presenters and getting everyone slotted
  • Testing hours scattered across 4 days.  There will be additional times to accommodate those who need it (England for example )
  • Please distribute reminders to your teams

Updates from Steering - Fundraising Call.  The annual fundraising email will be going out later this month, and there will be an option to make a larger one-time seed contribution and/or multi-year commitment to help jump-start hiring of staff.  Just to be clear, no hiring process will be started until funding is in place.
