Minutes: 


Report on Samvera Virtual Connect (either/or both Nabeela and Chrissy)

* Held on July 11th. Retrospective meeting on the 24th with survey results.
* Event went well, many people indicated since they can not attend Connect this was a good opportunity.
* Survey indicated communication was good, lightening talks may have been too short was a common theme.
* Q&A process was improved over years past, with questions from chat, moved to a doc, and asked from the doc.
* Chrissy has done a lot of work to document the process for running a Virtual Connect.

Planning for the next Samvera Virtual Connect

* Would be nice to have it in Spring rather than Summer, may be less hectic.
* May want to have tracks, maybe one for devs/techs and one for managers/metadata, etc.
* Esme: maybe an hour long event 2-3 different times through out the year, may be good with different focus's.
* Particularly effective format for interest group updates.
* John: Likes the idea of a bigger event less frequently, would be nice if the presentations were marked with who the target audience is.
* Karen: How should we go about finding volunteers to plan the next Virtual Connect? Call for Volunteers to pick up the planning process. This should probably be on the agenda for the Partner meeting at Samvera Connect.
* Nabeela: Should we send out a survey to see what the community thinks about the format of future events or discuss at the partner meeting? Suggestion to discuss at Partners Meeting in SLC this fall.
