2017 RID LEAD Together Conference
Leadership Track
Live Streaming Options UPDATE!!!

The RID Board of Directors’ vision for the Leadership Track of the 2017 Lead Together conference is to purposefully engage RID members and community stakeholders in discussions about the current and future direction of RID.  The Leadership Track of the conference provides an exciting and first of its kind opportunity for members and stakeholders to directly contribute to the planning process associated with the 2018-2022 RID Strategic Plan. Through group discussion and activities, strategic recommendations will be developed and synthesized into a guiding document for use by the Board of Directors and other volunteer leadership of RID.

Although onsite registration is limited, the RID Board of Directors is committed to engaging as many members as possible into these important discussions. We are excited to offer a unique opportunity for members who would like to participate in the activities happening on-site during the conference, which includes the ability to earn the full 2.2 CEUs being offered. To that end, RID will be providing live streaming options for groups and individuals for the Leadership Track.  Here’s how it will work…

Affiliate Chapters, Member Sections, CMP Sponsors, or any group of interested individuals can choose to organize a small or large group to participate in a remote location by registering for the Live Streaming Group Option.  To get started, simply identify a remote group facilitator and contact Carol Turner RID Professional Development Manager at conference@rid.org.

The remote facilitators are responsible for:

  • Identifying themselves as a remote facilitator
  • Recruiting group members
  • Registering group members with Carol Turner
  • Paying for the group through their member portal
  • Identifying a site for the group to access the online streaming content
  • Completing facilitator training
  • Receiving training materials for the group
  • Distributing training materials to the group
  • Guiding group discussions/activities during the conference
  • Submitting attendance roster
  • Tracking, collecting and submitting all CEU paperwork
  • Submitting strategic recommendations paperwork

 

Training: The FREE online training and CEU earnings for onsite and remote facilitators are exactly the same! Facilitators will access the training through a link we will provide you. The modules are self-paced but must be completed by June 30 (seven weeks) and we estimate it will require about 8 hours to complete all the modules—including viewing the ASL content, reading written materials, participating in one Q and A webinar, and completing the pre- and post test.

Facilitators earn .8 Professional Studies CEUs for completing the facilitator training modules. The online training is currently under development and RID HQ anticipates having the training ready by May 12, 2017. After the facilitator has completed the training and registered the group, and prior to the conference, those same materials will be provided to the facilitators to guide the group discussions and activities during the conference. Likewise, the attendance rosters and the strategic recommendations that come out of each of the remote groups will be forwarded to RID HQ for tracking of CEUs and for inclusion in the Strategic Planning Guiding document.

The 2017 RID LEAD Together conference is different this year and we know that this work cannot be achieved without the facilitators, as a result; facilitators will earn an additional 2.2 Professional Studies CEUs for leading and participating in the small group discussions. The remote groups will also have online meta-facilitators available to answer questions, provide clarification, and offer support.  The online meta-facilitator(s) will be located onsite at the conference in Salt Lake City and can assist remote groups with connecting to the plenary speakers and volunteer leaders as needed.  

In summary, the designated facilitator is responsible for securing a location for the remote group to participate in live streaming, collecting and making registration payment,  guiding the on-site discussion. and submitting CEUs and strategic recommendations.
