Beginning this month, SPARC will be hosting an “Expert Chat” series within our Members’ Facebook group.These chats will be similar to webinars but a little bit less formal; you will be watching someone talk on Facebook Live instead of following a presenter’s slides. Chats will be about 30-45 minutes long, and will be conducted by those working in rural and remote communities across the province. We will be choosing topics and leaders based on the discussion happening in our Members’ Facebook Group, and are hoping to host 1-2 of these chats each month.

So far, Network Coordinator Rebecca Ballarin has done a brief “intro video”, explaining the concept for the chats. As our discussion topic for this month is “Resources”, we launch the chat series today – Monday, March 5th – at 2pm, when Ceilidh and Natalie from Ontario Presents will join us online to tell us more about their organization and the many resources they have to offer.

To join the discussion in the Members’ Facebook group and be able to tune in to the chats live, become a SPARC member (it’s FREE!).

Not quite ready to join us, but want to see what these chats are all about? They will be uploaded to our YouTube channel within a few days of the live event.
