What is Samvera Virtual Connect 2020?
Samvera Virtual Connect (SVC), is an opportunity for Samvera Community participants to gather online to touch base on the progress of community efforts at a roughly halfway point between face-to-face Samvera Connect meetings. Samvera is a growing, active community with many initiatives taking place across interest groups, working groups, local and collaborative development projects, and other efforts, and it can be difficult for community members to keep up with all of this activity on a regular basis. SVC will give the Samvera community a chance to come together to catch up on developments, make new connections, and re-energize itself towards Samvera Connect 2020.
When will Samvera Virtual Connect 2020 take place?
Samvera Virtual Connect 2020 will take place over two days. Each day's event will be broadcast via Zoom. You do not need to stay online for the entire program. Video recordings will be made available after the conclusion of the meetings.
