GHKC Meeting -- May 31, 2017

Please join us for our spring GHKC meeting on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at URC's new office in Chevy Chase, Maryland (at the Friendship Heights Metro on the Red Line).  The theme of this meeting is building capacity for knowledge management (KM), which we will explore through a knowledge cafe where we will share our own experiences, challenges, and questions with each other around topics like engaging field staff in KM, best practices for building toolkits, increasing use of toolkits, eLearning and other knowledge products, using mobile apps to facilitate knowledge sharing, developing writing skills among staff, and building in pause and reflect moments in program implementation.

We will also have an open Sharing and Shout-outs time to hear about new KM products, initiatives, and approaches.

Please RSVP through the Event Brite link below to let us know if you are attending in person or online.  If you want to attend online, please register for the WebEx meeting here.  WebEx participants will form their own knowledge cafe group and discuss the questions that interest them.
