CSCCE’s four-part PACT framework outlines the key elements to consider when planning a virtual meeting or event: P for purpose, A for attendees, C for community management, and T for tech tools. As each meeting or event is highly context-specific, the framework is intended to help you examine that context and then design an event that works for the attendees. What works in one context, such as using a specific online tool, may not work for participants who are unfamiliar with the technology. The power of making a PACT is in being intentional about meeting design for each event.
