Day one agenda:

June 23, 2020
9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Opening Keynote Session – 9:00 am | Zoom Webinar* 
Explanation of why we are here, and what the day will be about. Reiteration of the “leaders and implementers” structure, so as attendees switch to “breakout rooms” they’ll have a better understanding of group dynamics.

Facilitated Breakout Sessions – 10:00 am – 12:00 pm | Zoom Meetings**
Breakout sessions assessing the damage and opportunities as we all learn from the experiences of dealing with COVID-19. Facilitators will help breakout groups assess and discuss what has happened in the wake of the pandemic, and the variety of responses. There will be discussion around technology, business and service delivery models, and relationships with partners. Facilitators will help develop themes that will be discussed in the afternoon session.

Break for Lunch – 12:00pm – 1:00 pm

Closing Debreif Session – 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm | Zoom Webinar*
Group discussion around themes discovered during morning breakout sessions. Facilitators and group-members will debrief, and we will develop regional next steps to carry through Summer and into Fall. We will also discuss day two of the virtual summit that will be held on September 22, 2020 and how to continue discussion throughout. 

*Zoom Webinar: Attendees microphones and cameras will be disabled. This will be used for the opening keynote session and the closing debrief session. 

**Zoom Meeting: Requires attendees participation through live video and audio. Participants will need access to a web camera and microphone (built-in to most laptops, tablets, and phones).
