One of the positive benefits of the pandemic has been the fact that we can attend a variety of training and meetings without driving any further than our couches or our offices. While we at NEO-RLS are the first to believe that working together in-person is energizing and beneficial, the thought of attending training and meetings during the winters in Northeast Ohio can give one pause. We generally dial back our programming during January for this very reason. This year, without the weather to contend with, we are offering a plethora of virtual Network Group meetings during the remainder of January. Bring your ideas and challenges to your colleagues this month. There are meetings scheduled for Book Discussion (1/20/21), Youth Services (1/25/21), Adult Services (1/26/21), Management (1/27/21), IT (1/27/21), Facilities and Admin (1/28/21), and Technical Services (1/28/21), in the hopes that you will start your year out by sharing with others dealing with similar situations. And, because we think that getting together with your colleagues is important, even when it is virtually, we have scheduled more Network Group meetings for February. In addition, we will be implementing new Message Boards (list-servs) for each of our Network Groups beginning March 1, 2021. The Message Boards will allow you to communicate directly with those involved in your Network Group. We will be rolling out additional information about the Message Boards as we get closer to March. Until then, we hope you take the opportunity to network with each other from the comfort of wherever you are currently working. Thanks and have a safe and healthy week!
