Did you miss your fellow CCCs and co-op friends at CONNECT in May? Well, now we have a virtual space to get together in August. CONNECT Online is a five-hour experience that will help take the edge off while you wait until next year (May 4-6, Nashville). Offered over two days (August 20-21), CONNECT Online is not a virtual conference. Instead, it is designed to be a place for us to gather, exchange ideas and experiences, and be inspired to do some old things in new ways – especially in light of the shift in perspective that COVID 19 brought on. Thus, you will get to do what you like to do best: learn and enjoy yourself. Our fabulous emcee, Beth Ziesenis, will orchestrate our networking and make sure we are all having fun. Jason Hewlett, (who you may remember from CONNECT 2017) will end the conference with some belly laughs and inspiration about standing out in a sit-down world by finding your signature moves.

See if you can take five hours out of your busy schedule just for you and connect with communicators from across co-op nation. It might just be the change of scenery that you need! Registration is $189 per person (not per co-op). This is the low "introductory rate," so you may want to jump in and be a part of this inaugural event!
