As we approach the one year mark of the global shift to working predominantly online, our community programming this month is focused on consolidating what we’ve learned so far and continuing to adapt together. In the third part of our free-to-download virtual events guidebook, we offer a five-step process for selecting virtual tools to supplement your online meetings and events. We’re also re-launching our community Tools Trials at the end of February – when we work with community members to test and review different online tools. In the latest iteration, instead of testing one tool at a time, we’ll devote each monthly trial to solving a specific use case together.
Behind the screen, many of us are juggling work and other commitments all within the confines of our homes. This Wednesday, our community call will hold space to discuss the challenges of working from home, with two members of our community of practice offering suggestions, strategies, and tools to help balance work and the rest of our lives.

New resource: Selecting and testing online tools
In the third part of our virtual events guidebook, we share a strategy for selecting and testing online tools to supplement your virtual meetings or events. We walk you through the process; defining the goals or use case first and then finding the right tool to meet your needs.
In this month’s call (Wednesday, 17 February at 4pm UTC / 11am EST) we’re focusing on working remotely. We’ll hear from two working-from-home veterans about how they structure their day, what tools or strategies they use, and how they balance work and the rest of our lives.
In 2020, we conducted a series of virtual tools trials to test out platforms and apps that help communities connect and work together online. This Spring, “Tools Trials 2.0” will not focus on a single platform, but instead we’ll devote each monthly trial to addressing a specific use case. This month: virtual networking events.
