The virtual initiatives team, after offering the fall workshop series in the fall of 2020, took a step back in 2021 once the board approved the fully virtual annual conference. While the drive to continue professional development and networking is still valid, the team also realized the Zoom fatigue experienced across our membership. A pause in activities allowed the team to be available to the annual conference team to assist in hosting responsibilities as needed.
Currently, the virtual initiatives team is pursuing opportunities to build connections among ACL members on a more regular basis throughout the year and will be working with team leaders to facilitate meetings, webinars, and other virtual gatherings to foster growth and provide a platform for knowledge sharing. The virtual initiatives team continues to work with the annual conference team as well to assist in hybrid and virtual components of the annual conference. If you have an idea for a virtual event, either topic or speaker, please contact a member of the virtual initiatives team; Gina Bolger, Robert Burgess, or April VanPutten.
