Monday, September 25, 2017
As summer is quickly approaching, we would like to again remind you to make sure you save the date for the rescheduled 15th Anniversary event of Beacon Hill Village and the Village Movement with Dr. Atul Gawande. We hope that you will add this event to your calendars and schedule an event for you members. We look forward to having your Village participate in this live event. Please remember, even if you registered for the February event, you MUST register your Village for this event through the VtV Network event calendar.
Beacon Hill Village, the founding Village of the Village Movement is celebrating it’s 15th year of operation and originally planned to host an event to celebrate this exciting milestone in February with Atul Gawande, author of Being Mortal, as the keynote speaker. Like before, BHV plans not only to celebrate their 15th Anniversary, but to celebrate the 15 years of the Village Movement as well. Villages have been making an impact throughout the world for 15 years and this is truly something to celebrate!
BHV and Village to Village Network are again inviting all Villages to participate in this event by hosting watch parties for your Village members. The event will be presented live as a webinar. We encourage you to share with your members this opportunity to hear Atul Gawande speak about the value of community and opportunities as we grow older and participate in a live event with thousands of Village members across the country. The rescheduled webcast will take place on September 25, 2017 from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM EASTERN.
To sign your Village up to host a watch party, we will need ONE representative from your Village to register through the VtV Network event calendar. This will be all that you need to register your Village to host a watch party. Login details for the webinar will be sent by September 15th to each Village registered. Even if you registered to host a watch party for the February event, you will need to again register your Village to confirm your participation for the new date. Access to the viewing of the event will be limited and by reservation only. We will have the capacity to have at least one entry to the webinar for each Village. You must register your Village by September 1, 2017 in order to participate in the live streaming event.
Additional information can be found on the event page on vtvnetwork.org. We've also updated all of the materials in the 15th Anniversary folder in the Village to Village Network document library. This folder contains FAQs, sample press releases, newsletter articles and other background info for the event.
We hope that all Villages will participate in some capacity in this momentous occasion. If you have any questions at all, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
