In Boulder we have cancelled all in person meetings for now, except City Council. We are holding some meetings online with GoogleTeams and some on conference calls or Zoom. We will pilot telephone town halls for City Council and are considering what might work for project engagement.
Sara Drury
16:47
Kevia, could you please share the google docs link again?

Keiva Hummel, @ncdd
17:07
Yes! It’s right there. Let me know if you have any issues accessing it
Jan Davidson
17:28
No problem opening it, thanks Keiva!
Courtney Breese
20:28
I know we have a lot of folks - if you feel you are having a hard time chiming in, feel free to "raise your hand" in the app
Brenda RItenour ESF23
21:57
I'm not seeing where to raise a hand.
Robbi
21:57
I'm curious if the resources document might be able to be sorted or marked via free or paid services? For groups working in the community, meeting in person is also often inexpensive, if community centres or churches donate space
Marie Lagier
21:58
In Quebec City we have also cancelled all public meetings. The city council keeps on meeting but without public in the room. There is a webcast and on local TV however.
Courtney Breese
22:15
Robbi - that's an interesting idea. We'll look at that!
Diane Miller
22:22
Here is a Covid-19 resource list that a group of non-profits across the country has put together. It is pretty broad-ranging list of resources (not just facilitation resources). https://docs.google.com/document/d/1k5pC-R1V4SK4bRPN7cqh9WpIxubXP5tt8qpF5hinMoQ/preview
Diane Miller
24:31
To raise hand, click on participants, which pops up when you move your cursor to the center bottom of the screen. You’ll see it then in the chat (blue raised hand).
Chuck Crumpton
25:31
For those interested in training in videoconference facilitation/mediation, Susan Guthrie's are excellent at www.learntomediateonline.com

Peggy Holman
28:03
I should also mention the idea of emphasizing human connection. A friend organized playing a game online.
Peggy Holman
29:50
This experience is mobilizing tremendous innovation. We forging new pathways that I suspect what we will continue to develop because this will happen again. There hasn’t been much coverage about pandemics as a result of climate change but the connection is there.

Jan Davidson

grateful to those speaking of trainings available for moderating online. we are planning to move to a lot of online versions of things we've done live in the past, and while we're experienced facilitators and moderators in person, and have TAUGHT or done meetings fairly extensively online, these are different ballgames, so trying to figure out what it is we don't know, what's different, etc. Excited to check out some of these trainings!
Robbi
38:49

Hi all,
Patricia Carmody
44:34
Great idea...
Resolutions Northwest
45:16
On that note - Do folks who use Zoom have favorite intro videos for participants?
LZordan
45:39
What sort of timing are you looking at for starting to engage online? Do you think there needs to be a bit of time / break for the general public before they can dedicate the headspace to a public engagement topic?
Susan McCormack
46:06
I am also interested in virtual “ice-breakers” and would love hear people’s ideas about that.
Karen
46:07
Have other municipalities or government organizations been having conversations about the ethics of engaging on business as usual during the crisis, and how people are assessing when is the right time to go out again?
Peggy Holman
46:20
The Art of Hosting community is hosting a call like this one at 4pm PT today: https://zoom.us/j/2261961783
erin senior
46:30
That's a really good question. Should we be waiting until April to try and engage our communities about other topics?
Chuck Crumpton
46:40
Susan Guthrie has a Ground Rules & Guidelines list she gives participants before her (all online) mediations. www.learntomediateonline.com
Jane Purvis

Jan Davidson
50:52
We've been talking for the last couple months about CCs online, and we're really excited to see how it might work.
Brenda RItenour ESF23
53:06
We are inviting our staff members who are considering online engagement for their projects to really lean into the fundamentals - What input to they truly need from the community? Will this conversation feel relevant to community members at this time? Can they fulfill the promises of engagement at this time? Some work must continue, and it is a great opportunity to brush up our critical planning eye.
Courtney Breese
53:43
