On Thursday, October 18 at 1:00 ET, lifelong learning market expert Jeff Cobb will moderate a discussion with representatives from the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) about the organization's highly successful virtual conference.
This summer, NHPCO engaged more than 5,000 hospice volunteers from all 50 states in their 2012 Volunteer Leadership Virtual Conference. Webinar attendees will learn how they did it—from the initial thought process and planning, to the instructional design and structure of the event. They'll also hear how NHPCO promoted the event and how they measured success and return on investment.
Cobb will facilitate discussion with the team from NHPCO and CommPartners who made the virtual conference such a success. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions and learn some steps they can take to produce successful virtual conferences at their own organizations.
As part of the presentation, Cobb will highlight key data points from the Association Virtual Events report he co-authored with Celisa Steele.
