Hi David! At present, there's no funding secured. That said, the project has received funding in past years. I'm relatively confident (70-80%) that for the right org/individual, there are a few different funding sources that would consider funding it.

Thanks for taking the time to complete and share a first-pass assessment, David! I'll follow up with a bit more info when I'm able.

Given that the process to spend the $50 doesn't have to happen right away (unless I'm mistaken), then maybe it should be emphasized that the signing up part only takes 20 seconds or so. 

Thanks so much!

Hi! Great idea. I'm Megan, I work in communications at Rethink Charity and at ALLFED. I'd love to be in the group, although I don't have a lot of capacity to contribute to it over the next few months. Thanks!

Hello Chloe. I'm also an early career communications generalist who likes running, vegan cooking, and living abroad. Happy to chat about my experiences with any of these, or with working at EA orgs!

Interesting to hear about the flexible take you already had on video/audio. Thanks for the response and for editing the post!

Hi Aidan, thanks for the great tips! I read this after the conference, so I’ll have to use some of them next time. “Dive down the rabbit holes of passion” is a fantastic phrase.

Do you have thoughts on mentioning the option for audio-only calls to people you’re wanting to chat with, in case that would make them more comfortable and/or willing to meet in the first place? I for one have only recently gotten over some of my nerves surrounding video calls with new people. Now I find them engaging, but sometimes distracting as well.

During the conference, I wondered if some people find face-to-face networking daunting, and would appreciate the option—for them perhaps an additional benefit of a virtual conference—to choose how and when they use video. I think going forward I’ll offer the option to people I’m connecting with (for them and for me).

Hope you had a great conference!
