Here is what is upcoming in 2022 for Community Conversations:
Getting Started with Zoom (and Virtual Meetings) hosted by Erin Susman:
Erin is our resident tech expert at The Hub, who has countless tips and tricks that are helpful when you need to connect virtually and engage your community from afar. Learn best practices and how to be a Zoom pro like Erin.
Getting Started with Data hosted by Katie Loudin: How can you get started in your community if you don’t understand what people want? Gathering data (with a little “d”! We promise this isn’t rocket science!) is an important part of the community building process. Anyone can gather data through surveys and interviews, and it can be a fun process to get to know others and build relationships that may be crucial in the future.
Getting Started with Projects hosted by Stacy Thomas: Learn how to stop just talking about projects and get started with them! Learn where to start, who to get to help, and how to build community support with Stacy, a Hub community coach who started her career journey as a HubCAP team member.
Getting Started with Building Relationships hosted by Amanda Workman Scott: Amanda will bring her wealth of knowledge in relationship building from her eight years at The Hub to help you learn how to build meaningful relationships for your community work. Learn activities to help bring community volunteers together and successfully work toward common goals.
Getting Started with Community Storytelling hosted by Emma Pepper: Telling your community story is powerful, important, and not always easy. Emma will share her wisdom, insight, and tools from her experiences in helping West Virginia’s communities tell their story and tips for engaging media.
Engaging your Core Team hosted by Stacy Thomas: Who are your “go to” people? Learn who you need on your team, how to get them to be involved, and how to build an effective team that will be able to bring change to your community.
Creating an Equitable Team hosted by Kalyn Obiozor: Does your community team represent everyone in your community? Is your team accessible to many different kinds of people from diverse backgrounds who all feel welcome? Kalyn will talk about how to make your team inclusive, welcoming, and accessible to all.
