Session 4: Where is your community? (Global / Local)

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 11:15 - 12:30

Chair:  Colleen Scollans, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), Colleen Scollans LLP

What does it mean to be a convener of a community in an environment where we are trying to reduce to global travel footprint?

This session will include a panel of four society leaders who will consider what Global / Local means to the different activities of their societies. Each will present for 10 minutes on what their societies have done / are planning on doing / conundrums they face across the society activities (membership, meetings, education, professional development, publishing).

This will be followed by whole room discussion.
