Face to Face meetings

Kickoff-September 29, 2009

Culminating Celebration- April 21, 2010

Elluminate Webinars

  • The online webinar sessions will be held 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 a high speed Internet connection and 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 to 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, however, it is doable, (a bit annoying), but doable if you have a headset.
