      • We will assign everyone to breakout rooms manually.

        • Before the end of each session in the breakout rooms, you will see a pop-up letting you know it’s time to prepare for a room switch. You’ll then meet another new person(s)!
      • (3) 5-minute 1-on-1 sessions in virtual breakout rooms where you’ll each get the chance to meet some new members of the community
      • (2) 10-minute sessions with 3-4 members in each room to give people the opportunity to get to know one another in a small group setting..
    • If there is an issue in the room, feel free to use the chat to message one of the board members or go into the main session so Brandie or Kimberly can come to the rescue.
