so true. Given ever-increasing travel restrictions, last year, we (an employee network within the provincial government) held a full-day learning symposium that was co-hosted by five hub locations simultaneously and linked by video-conference to one site for key note speaker, awards, etc. followed by regional in-person session (and workshops). Not the same as having all folks together, but this was the best we could do given the circumstances – no funding, no budget, travel restrictions. We also had piloted accessing the symposium live from staff workstations. Overall, it was a success. A first of a kind undertaking, and organized purely by volunteer power (on a side of our desks, as they say).
