September 2009 Nancy Settle-Murphy - Planning and Running Successful Virtual Meetings #monthly-call #remote-work

nsettlemurphy <nancy@...>

Hello everyone,

For the September SIKM Leaders Community conference call (Planning and Running Successful Virtual Meetings), we will be following a format that reflects virtual meeting "best practices." So instead of showing slides, I have set up a virtual conference area using FacilitatePro for our session, to be used both before the September 15 webinar and during that actual conference call.

Starting right now, I'd like to invite you to our online conference area to introduce yourself and to answer a few simple questions, which will help me modify our session to best meet the needs of those who plan to attend. You will also find a tips guide to download and review. Please participate no later than Friday, Sept. 11.

We will use this same virtual conference room and logon information for our conference call on September 15, when our phone conference line will be the same we always use: USA and Canada: Toll-Free 888-998-2663 or Toll +1 517-466-2222, Participant Passcode: 406165. For other countries, see


Any questions, please contact me at nancy@... or via phone at 978.263.2545 (Boston, Mass. area).


Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Hi everyone,

In a previous post, I invited those who plan to attend next week's meeting to join our asynch conference in advance, to give us an idea of the type of challenges you'd like to explore.

If you plan to attend the meeting on Sept. 15, I'd appreciate your dropping by the conference room by end of day Sept. 11 to make a quick introduction. Please see my previous post for log-on information.

Another reason this advance participation is important: By knowing approximately how many people plan to join, I have a better chance of designing a session that engages everyone. (As you might guess, planning a set of activities for 12 people is very different from planning a virtual meeting for 30 people!)

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact me at

Many thanks, and looking forward to "seeing" you next week.
