What is Samvera Virtual Connect 2019?
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 2019.
When will Samvera Virtual Connect 2019 take place?
Samvera Virtual Connect 2019 will take place online on Tuesday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 24, 2019.

Brief community updates from Samvera Interest and Working Groups
