FOCL IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE: 

FOCL Chats!  


Coming off of the great success of our Fall Conference last November and as a way of keeping the conversation going, we are proud to announce 'FOCL Chats'. FOCL Chats are a place for FOCL members to share their successes, express their pain points, and problem solve based on their peers' learnings. These 1hr virtual meet ups will cover a variety of topics that are timely and relevant to Friends groups. 

Registration for each session will be limited to no more than 10 people to provide a welcoming and conversational environment where everyone’s voice can be heard.

The FOCL Chats will be moderated by a member of the FOCL Board. At the beginning of each chat we will be reviewing zoom etiquette. To ensure everyone gets a chance to speak we will be enforcing 5 min windows per library. 

We look forward to chatting more!
