Face to Face


Kickoff - March 25, 2011

Culminating Celebration - November 29, 2011


Virtual

  • The online webinar sessions will be held in the virtual meeting environment "Elluminate." Prior to each session, your Team Leader will be given a web link to share with all team members. This link will enable one to download the software and access the virtual meeting space.
  • To attend the meeting, participants will need a computer with a high-speed Internet connection and a headset with a mic.

  • It works best if Team Leaders are available to help get all team members logged in a few hours before the scheduled meeting and troubleshoot any glitches in advance.

  • Someone will be available one hour prior to each Elluminate meeting to help make logging in a success.

  • It also helps if teams are not in the same room during the Elluminate sessions. It is doable, albeit a bit annoying, but doable if you have a headset to cut down on audio feedback.
