#hivebuzz: Share program or project updates

Click here to learn about how you can Share & Lead discussions or projects at the meetup.

During the meetup anyone can have 60 seconds to announce an event, program or opportunity available to others and then 10-15 minutes to lead small discussion/breakout groups to share more details and information about your update with curious attendees. If you are interested, you’ll need to let us know in advance. Please submit your information via the online form by end of the day, on the Tuesday EOB February 14, 2016.

Moonshots Working Groups: lead discussion and project groups

Have a project? Want to lead a discussion? In advance of the Meetup: let us know if you are interested in leading one of these groups:

Moonshot discussion groups: You or a representative can volunteer to lead a discussion about a project idea that connects to a Moonshot; either how it serves to demonstrate challenges related to the area, or how it demonstrates a solution to those challenges. Discussion groups allow you to invite input from other Hivers.

Moonshot project groups: in this area of activity, you would present the project and pieces of work or tasks that others can help with. This might be drafting, designing, communicating, reviewing, etc. The goal would be to help others contribute to the work. In this format you can facilitate an engaging share-out of your project while also getting something done! Ideally, this is work that could be brought back to meetups monthly.

Community Manager Office Hours

Have questions about membership, how to effectively engage in the Hive, RFP’s, or expectations of members? Come to our Monthly meetup and stay after for Community Manager Office Hours from 12:00PM -12:30PM. You’ll have a chance to meet the Hive staff and have an opportunity to ask questions.


January Meetup Recap

Our January meetup was a great way to close the year!  Attendees got some needed time to continue work on moonshot health reports in preparation for 2017.    Couldn’t make it to the meetup?  No worries!  Check out what you missed below.

Moonshots

Over the past few months we have been given our moonshots attention so that we can improve our productivity, learn the depth of the issues we face and the factors that impact our work, in order to begin the new year with a plan in hand that new members can join in. This work lead us to shift or broaden the moonshots that we have come to know, our moonshots are as of today:

  • Youth Voice
  • Think Tank (Previously Data)
  • Access (merges our previous Transportation & Onramps moonshot)
  • Community Engagement (previously Parent Engagement)
  • School Hive
  • Quality of Life (our new moonshot)

Moonshots shared an overview of their areas of focus for the year, success of previous work and seed ideas for collaborative projects they look forward to unfolding in 2017. Take a look at the Moonshot Health Reports, here,  to learn more.
