This User Talk will be in two parts – a few words from the ClubExpress’ new liaison to Villages, Kate Vestuto, followed by a “Giant Q+A.”
Kate is the new ClubExpress liaison to the Village Network and the Village movement. Dan Ehrmann, who had been CE’s liaison to the Village movement, has retired as CEO of ClubExpress. At the beginning of the User Talk, Kate, a long-time member of CE’s management, will describe her new role and other CE/RMV changes impacting Villages now that Dan has left.
Giant Q+A:Villages often ask how to use, how can we do, and what’s the best way to implement RMV features. To answer some of your questions, we’ve set up another session of our “Giant Q+A’s”. The February User Talk will have an entirely new list of questions (+ a few repeats where the question has been come up again) and, of course, questions from the attendees. Once again, Geoffrey from CE/RMV will be on the spot…but expect answers and observations from Village participants.
We intend this session to address specific questions about RunMyVillage/ClubExpress’ features that we have heard in our communication with Villages (that is, this is a “deeper dive,” not a general overview of features). The idea is to improve our skills by demoing specific features that have been asked about, answering specific questions, and making suggestions about how (and why) to use RMV features. We will specifically look at features that we found that some Villages don’t know are already available, so we’ve found that every participant learns something new and useful. Discussion at the Giant Q+A’s is always robust and informative.
If you have questions you would like us to address, send them to us on or before the meeting at RMVusers@vtvnetwork.org.
This is not a session for users seeking basic understanding of RMV. Please invite anyone from your Village who you think might be interested in this Q+A.
If you have not yet signed up for the RMV Forum, please do so through (1) signing up through your Profile on the VtV site or (2) sending us an email.
These monthly talks are designed to help Villages use RunMyVillage more effectively. Each month has a different topic. The intended audience always includes the technology community within your Village; in addition, others in the Village may be invited based on the planned topic. Each of the User Talks has time for Villages to ask RunMyVillage-related questions to RMV and to other Villages. Examples of what we plan for these talks: RMV new release updates and discussions, results of surveys of desired enhancements to RMV, discussion of best practices and common issues particularly where Villages use RMV is different ways, and orientations for new Villages. If you have ideas for topics, email us at RMVusers@vtvnetwork.org. Videos for all previous User Talk webinars are on the VtV website.
