Beyond Labels will restart next Monday, October 12, in a virtual “Zoom” format.
After resisting the move to a virtual platform for months, the pressures to restart our discussions and (what I hope has been) our community’s growing competence with “Zoom meeting etiquette” have combined to convince me that it’s time to revive Beyond Labels.
Each week’s session will require registration via the Blue Hill Public Library website, with the total number of participants limited to 15 each week. To register for a given week’s session, you can visit the BHPL upcoming events page or its full event calendar. After registering, you should receive a confirmatory email with the Zoom link and a reminder the day before each Beyond Labels session.
Given my continuing concerns about the online format, I hope that “a goodly number” of Beyond Labels regulars will register early–at least for the first few sessions. I do want to make sure the standards and protocols we developed over the years will be maintained. As with the physical sessions, Beyond Labels meetings are open to anyone.
I look forward to speaking with [up to 15] of you next Monday. (We haven’t set a topic for Monday, but it’ll certainly be related to politics and our upcoming election.)
