Hey Jerry, 

It was really great! to see you as well, and thanks for suggesting meeting at Wajan's too. (Thanks too for your email, and you're welcome). 

Greetings from Reed. And here's the 'Longevity' label at WUaS - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/longevity?m=0. It's particularly these writings and video that I'm looking at - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/06/montane-ecosystems-longevity.html - presently Looking forward to staying in touch about these questions as well. Please keep me posted about what you might learn in these regards. (I'll see if there are any online Youtubes by Jill Helms).

Just ran into Stanford CS professor, Eric Roberts, who's now teaching at Reed, and has some Quaker background (and his wife went to Reed). Do you happen to know each other:)? (His wife is a Reedie).

Am curious if Friends' research may somehow emerge in these regards as well (and possibly re MIT OCW-centric World University and School).

Scott

to Andrew, Jerry

Dear Jerry,

Here's a Youtube with Jill Helms, with President Hennessy in the audience she says at around 4 minutes -

Longevity with Jill Helms

https://youtu.be/pFnxhWmHBt0

Am curious how we might talk further about some of your ideas for licensing World University and School with the state of California's Bureau of Private Postsecondary (BPPE), and even related funding for this. World Univ & Sch is seeking the initial ~$5000 for this + an annual fee after this, and is partly networking here at Reed Forum for Advancing Reed in these regards; see, too, this blog post - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/klamath-mountains-ecoregion.html?m=0 - at bottom beginning 'Hi Konrad, Keith and Govind, ....'

I'm not sure about Quakers and monies for Friendly-informed World Univ & Sch as a 501 c 3. The Abbots' involvement with the Port of Portland comes to mind as an example in these regards too ... How might we best talk further about some of these questions, and also re the WUAS facilitation letter? (I'll share this again from the other email above). Have you worked in related issues and how might I share further possible helpful information in these regards. Thanks so much.

Best regards, Scott

Hi Jerry,

As you may have read in a previous email, World Univ & Sch has a 10% facilitation letter for people who might want to avail themselves of this fundraising opportunity which you'll find here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-DV_C9ZWmc5cWZPV3E0UmdaMDlKVWl1dFBoVWFOeWlPZW40/view?usp=sharing. If we all live a very very long time, such resources could be invaluable. (And Larry Viehland above is the chair of the Board at 501 (c) (3) World Univ & Sch as well).

Friendly regards, Scott

Cape Sebastian, Stanford Law CodeX online meeting - [codex_group_meetings] TODAY! CodeX Mtg (9/12 @1.30p PT): SprintLaw; Documate - SLS N112 (or via Zoom) * * * Oregon: Reed College . . . Reedies as graduate students to teach this, and to become WIUaS Ph.D. graduate students for free-to-students' degrees, as well as to become future faculty and staff. MIT OCW has about 32 MIT departments * * * Cape Sebastian hike


Dear Dorna, Alex (and Roland), 

Thanks for your timely Australia law IT perspective, and Documate presentation. I wrote in chat: 

What regulatory issues in Australia might you be facing, if any (and possibly with comparison with state of California thinking in these regards)? Thanks so much, Alex, for your Law Tech presentation in CodeX!

Let's stay in touch too about MIT OCW-centric Australia World University and School  (https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Nation_States), and especially with regards to our planned online Australia WUaS Law School - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Law_School (see the ~8 planned 'Law Schools at World University and School (planned in main languages in them' at bottom here). If possible, we'll develop in collaboration with Stanford Law CodeX, and WUaS seeks to become the Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Oxbridge of the Internet. 

Dorna, World Univ & Sch is also seeking to develop in Persian - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Persian_language - at Iran World Univ & Sch - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Iran_(Islamic_Republic_of) .

World Univ & Sch's platforms are CC-4 MIT OCW in its 5 languages (and Persian MIT OCW was archived only recently), Google in its ~100 languages with Translate, and Wikidata/Wikibase with its ~300 languages, and WUaS seeks to be in 7,111 known living languages.

If WUaS can, WUaS will seek to co-develop faculty / legal technology within a Google-centric platform - as well as with Google TensorFlow for data and AI - and will seek further collaboration with a wide variety of law practitioners and via our law faculty and professors. 

Thank you. 

Best, Scott

Candace!

Thanks for your thoughtful email. And congratulations on becoming Chief! Am hoping to connect and pair up soon, as well - and especially to begin a family. It occurs to me I could potentially meet a life partner at this Reed FAR weekend soon, and even, for example, by giving someone a ride back to the SF Bay Area, who might also be interested. Have blogged about this here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/big-flowered-wooly-meadowfoam-musing.html. In your new role as a NPS Chief, check out this incredible Meredith Delich/Patricia Deely Google for NonProfits' video (from 10 September 2019) which discusses so many management issues in brand new I.T. -centric ways - in this blog post too. Very germane for World Univ & Sch as well. World Univ & Sch's platforms are CC-4 MIT OCW in its 5 languages, Google in its ~100 languages with Translate, and Wikidata/Wikibase with its ~300 languages, and WUaS seeks to be in 7,111 known living languages. While Reed College offers one pedagogical model, MIT OCW another, and edX (Harvard/MIT founded, and re HarvardX and MITx) another one online, for example, the day-long state of California's BPPE licensing workshop on 2/20/19 in San Jose, CA - with a ginormous workbook we participants all brought home afterward with us - will focus World Univ & Sch on licensing for both Bachelor and Ph.D. degrees online in English. And WUaS seeks to offer online Humanities 101 (Reed informed re Hum 110 - and Nathalia King's lecture) as WUaS begins licensing (and then concurrently accrediting with WASC senior probably). And WUaS seeks to hire Reedies as graduate students to teach this, and to become WIUaS Ph.D. graduate students for free-to-students' degrees, as well as to become future faculty and staff. MIT OCW has about 32 MIT departments. These will be our initial majors in English, after the 6 in the course catalog here - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ - (and WUaS also seeks to hire 2.2 million people on both wings with time - https://worlduniversityandschool.blogspot.com/2016/01/14-planned-wuas-revenue-streams.html - all of which would advance Reed indeed).  Did you know that the MIT Sloan School of Management's courses are available online for free - https://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm - under CC-4 licensing? And I've just emailed Peter Norvig, head of Google's AI (who wrote the best text book for this) to inquire how he'd approach MIT OCW in Google. Maybe as part of this process, WUaS could generate some Sloan School of Management's courses that could be taken by NPS staff and which might be helpful for you in your new role. (And MIT OCW is still publishing new courses with full video - https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/1172194317483380736 & https://twitter.com/MITOCW/status/1171618130201915393) While Canyon 94516 where I live is very beautiful, as is my two-room house-let there, it's not big enough for a growing family. Greetings from Florence, Oregon, on night 2 of an up the coast journey to Reed. At Cape Sebastian south of here yesterday afternoon, met an amazing couple from Galicia Spain and we hiked 30 minutes down to the beach, and 30 minutes back up. On holiday, and driving down the coast from Seattle to SF, Manuel, a university researcher, is developing the Cabila (meaning think in Spanish, or tribe in Swahili) 'game' for cultural heritage - a field that overlaps with my actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnography project - as well as my UC Berkeley Tourism Studies' working and group and related talks I've given at Cal. And Tanit is a psychologist working with refugees in Galicia. Both could help a lot with World Univ & Sch in Galician and Spanish. (Could this too have been a kind of 'GPS introduction'?) Manuel and my meeting could relate too to a realistic virtual earth that would benefit the National Park Service as a new initiative even - in addition to online MIT&Google-centric management classes. :) I doubt there will be a Hum 110 lecture streamed from Reed FAR, but if there is I'll let you know, and perhaps we can sit together virtually. On with seeking to connect with a wonderful friend / girl friend / partner / wife / mom-to-be who's a great fit here ... :) Thanks so much for your ever so great email, and good luck and best wishes in your new role, Candace!

Living longer than the upper limit of 122 - to 150? - is looking promising - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/longevity - and hoping we can keep connecting like this, both in writing, virtually and in person - perchance next at Reed! (Check out the Montane Ecosystem blog post from May here :)

More later!

Are you on Twitter at all, Candace?

Dear Manuel and Tanit, 


More about ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy

Just shared this with a friend from Reed College: 

At Cape Sebastian south of here yesterday afternoon, met an amazing couple from Gallicia Spain and we hiked 30 minutes down to the beach, and 30 minutes back up. On holiday, and driving down the coast from Seattle to SF, Manuel, a university researcher, is developing the Cabila (meaning think in Spanish, or tribe in Swahili) 'game' for cultural heritage - a field that overlaps with my actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnography project - as well as my UC Berkeley Tourism Studies' working and group and related talks I've given at Cal. And Tanit is a psychologist working with refugees in Gallicia. 

How could we explore developing MIT OCW-centric World Univ & Sch in Gallician and Spanish further re Spain World University and School - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Spain - in Spanish - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Spanish_language (https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Languages)? See, too -https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/ ...

Friendly regards, Scott

Tanit and Manuel, 

Blogged a bit about this here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/cape-sebastian-stanford-law-codex.html ... see the Manuel Castells' label and many others per what we talked about. See my email here to Candace re method for degrees at World University and School. 

Very nice to meet you. Am still unclear about my schedule for returning to the SF Bay Area after the Reed FAR gathering which ends on Sunday. Consider checking out Harbin Hot Springs on your way south - https://harbin.org/ - but I'm not sure what accommodations they offer presently, after a ginormous fire in September of 2015, and having re-opened this January 2019. 

Cheers, Scott

Big-flowered Wooly Meadowfoam: Musing-making ('a period of reflection or thought' generation) ongoing, Klamath-Skiskyou EcoRegion in northern California, David Rains Wallace's The Klamath Knot book (1983), This Is Water https://youtu.be/8CrOL-ydFMI David Foster Wallace Commencement Speech-FASCINATING & #Hippy * * * How to READ David Rains Wallace's #TheKlamathKnot (1983) as GUIDEBOOK? ... for #RealisticVirtualEarthForHumanities > #RealisticVirtualEarthForEvolution ~ * * * After some horrendous experiences re ethics at Stanford by its staff and faculty - and re World University and School - I decided to look up more about the ethics and related philosophies I engage in, particularly re Taoist philosophy


Hi M,

Nice to talk and thanks for your email here. Musing-making ('a period of reflection or thought' generation) ongoing ... It occurs to me that I could meet someone at Reed FAR who needs a ride back to the SF Bay Area, and who might even want to head to the Klamath-Skiskyou EcoRegion on the way south. She could be 28, a MD to be, and beautiful ... or someone 25-35 looking to begin a family and very attractive ... and we could connect on the road trip ... would be happy to offer a ride ... to be seen.

Greetings from Crescent City. Car-camped near the Pepperwood exit on Hwy 101 south of Eureka - basically from 11p-7:30 all scrunched up on a Thermarest under 2 sleeping bags in the back of my Prius c, not bad, but where is the Toyota Proace / Lerina / Alphard / Hiace that gets 100 mpg in the US? :)

You at the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Series - http://www.chambermusicpittsburgh.org/our-concerts - and KL at Chatham Baroque / Chamber Music Pittsburgh - might find this Google
for Nonprofits video from yesterday very very helpful -

https://youtu.be/-0fZ41yl4q4. It has lots of great ideas for how to use their Google platform. Is the PCM in the Google for Nonprofits?

World Univ & Sch is in it for free ... it's worth checking out! Blogged about this Google for Nonprofits' video here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/09/desolation-wilderness-brilliant-google.html ...

Am continuing to find this Boston Baroque internet channel - http://www.bostonbaroque.org/boston-baroque-radio - inspiring, which you both might enjoy as well.

Brilliant Google for Nonprofits:

I found the following about about Taoist ethics:

Religions - Taoism: Taoist ethics - BBC

https://www.bbc.co.uk › religion › religions › taoism › taoethics › ethics_1
Nov 12, 2009 - Ethics and morality, as well as the creation of community, emerge as central in the Daoist religion. Taoist ethics are concerned less with doing good acts than becoming a good person who lives in harmony with all things and people. Taoist ethics are inseparable from Taoist spirituality - both contain the same ideas.

https://www.patheos.com/library/taoism/ethics-morality-community/principles-of-moral-thought-and-action -


Principles of Moral Thought and Action
The Taode jing and Zhuangzi were not interested in promoting specific moral virtues, and were critical of the idea of regulating society with standards of behavior.  According to these texts, to emulate nature and "do without doing" (wei wu-wei), and to harmonize oneself with Tao, will lead naturally to behavior that is genuinely virtuous.  "Drop humanity, abandon justice/ And the people will return to their natural affections" (Ch. 19).

Early Way of the Celestial Masters texts did not follow the Taode jing in rejecting Confucian virtues, but they did argue that an emphasis on the outward signs of moral behavior was incorrect.  Instead they advocated "secret virtue," good works done secretly and known only to the gods.  Nonetheless, the Celestial Masters movement in practice regulated morality in a variety of ways, including requiring followers to confess their wrong-doing and petition the heavenly authorities for forgiveness.

Scott MacLeod
​Ouida Duncan - World University and School seeks to offer online MIT OCW-centric free-to-students' licensing in CA degrees worlduniversityandschool.org re other strategic partnership possibilities

Tania Biswas
​Hi from Anudip Foundation ,Kolkata, India

Google for Nonprofits
​Partnerships with nonprofits is not a service that we offer, but you can keep an eye on the Google.org Impact Challenge website: https://www.google.org/our-work/googl...

Google for Nonprofits
​Please see this resource to know how to activate G Suite for Nonprofits from scratch: https://support.google.com/nonprofits...

Amy Curcio
​Are we able to import contacts into forms via the use of Labels in Gsuite? I've had issues with calendar/labels for a while now, and that functionality would be especially useful for sending surveys.

Google for Nonprofits
​Hi Amy, do you mean labels in Gmail?

elijah montgomery smith
​is there any relevant differences between short answers and paragraph answers? or is it just the size of the answer box in the form

Cheryl Gowing
​I've had difficult setting up Google for Non-Profit, because my 'real 'work already has a Google enterprise membership, so I keep getting blocked when trying to complete the setup,

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​Did the T-Shirt size populate on its own?

Amy Curcio
​#integrationissues

Breakthrough Cincinnati Official
​Can we upload documents to Google Forms? Ie: have volunteers sign contracts, etc.

Asociaciรณn Mibu
​¿Se sabe algo de App Market para Noprofi?

Greg Hersey
​What are the best dimensions for form headers?

snoww13
​[message retracted]

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​sweet!

Alissa CenterstageTheatre
​Is there a way to have preset time slots and have them choose the slots they want?

Famdys
​When sharing, why would we not see the option to share publicly. On my forms, I only see "requires sign in"

Guard Up's Guardian Adventures & STEM Summer Camps
​Does this form allow for Conditionals - where new fields show up depending upon specific answers?

snoww13
​Can you allow your participant in form to add an image?

G Hage
​Is there a limit on the number of questions?

Christopher Newell
​Can fields like e-mail, or phone number, be "masked" to ensure that they are properly formatted? (like all numbers for phone)

snoww13
​what is the add collaborators at the bottom of the send area

Google for Nonprofits
​Yes! Conditionals are available on Forms. please see this: https://support.google.com/docs/answe...

Google for Nonprofits
​You can set up the form in a way that it does not collect the email address of the respondent.

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​Can they submit payments through the forms or be redirected to a different page to make payments

Kalin Salman
​what will it say when they finish filling out the form? how do they send it back? can they upload it

Guard Up's Guardian Adventures & STEM Summer Camps
​Secondng the question on collecting payments!

Jennifer Green
​Does the information collected separate so that you are not sorting through the info?

Kalin Salman
​yes same. if they have to pay for a shirt

Sanam Karki
​when will Google for Non Profit be available to countries like Nepal? can you let us know that would be a great help

Luke Walrath
​Agreed on payment submission. Is there a way to integrate with a processor like PayPal or Stripe?

Google for Nonprofits
​Payments can't be submitted through forms.

Amy Curcio
​How about importing contacts with labels?

Google for Nonprofits
​To submit an answer, people will just go through the Form and hit submit. All answers are automatically stored in a Spreadsheet!

Google for Nonprofits
​Hey Amy, what labels are you referring to? Gmail labels?

Amy Curcio
​In my Contacts, there are groups of volunteers with different labels. I want to be able to send a survey to specific contacts with that label. Is there any way to do that?

Amy Curcio
​(I am not able to send emails through Calendar because the autosuggest does not include the Label functionality) - wondering if that has been accounted for in Forms

Google for Nonprofits
​You should create a Google Group with each of the contacts of the label, and share the Form with that group. https://support.google.com/groups/ans...

Wealthy Habits
​Can it be connected to salesforce? For example is candidates fill the form and submit their resume, can it be directly taken to salesforce?

Lea VanMerkestyn
​Can the answers be imported to Contacts?

Ziad Mansoor
​greeting from ITMAM _ Yemen

NC GreenPower
​Hello from Raleigh NC! I have an issue with the email associated with our Google account. Where can I get help with that? I've tried online forms and can't get assistance. Thank you!

Ana-Astrid Molina
​how to import answers?

snoww13
​can you text though group or hangout?

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​So... you can create a "sub" group within groups, right?

Cheryl Gowing
​Must group members have google accounts?

Google for Nonprofits
​Google Sheets integration with Salesforce: https://gsuiteupdates.googleblog.com/...

Amy Curcio
​This nested architecture seems difficult from a UX perspective. Why can't we use the labeling system to avoid the manual curation of group membership?

Scott MacLeod
​In that Google NPs could also be potentially focused toward fundraising for us (worlduniversityandschool.org), could you please suggest some additional form edits in these regards, brainstorming-wise?

Ana-Astrid Molina
​Where is the groups feature?

Google for Nonprofits
​G Suite support is available 24/7 via G Suite Admin Console. https://support.google.com/a/answer/1...

Google for Nonprofits
​It is a good feedback, Amy! Thanks for sharing, I'll pass it along to our team.

John Martin
​Perfect information about groups!

Scott MacLeod
​Thanks!

Al Wilson
​I might have missed this. IS there a way to put people in a group via the form?

Florida Native Plant Society
​can the form be connected to CiviCRM?

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​but within the "group" the @xyz must the domain, right?

Google for Nonprofits
​To start creating your Groups, here is the link: https://groups.google.com/a/google.co...

Google for Nonprofits
​Yes, it must be the domain of the email of the person. Can also be their personal email.

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​thank you

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​oh... so it can be their personal email... hm.

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​WOW! we need a "sheets" tutorial!!

Google for Nonprofits
​@Al Wilson: To put people in the Group, you'll just copy and paste their contacts from the Spreadsheet. The recording will be available, so you can see the steps again!

Al Wilson
​You can only add a few at a time.

Al Wilson
​There is gotta be a better way than copy and pasting.

Ruth's Way
​wait, I'm not sure how you were able to create the group from the sheets document? It looked like you just added a comma at the end of the 1st email address?

Amy Curcio
​(which is why filtering and selecting by labels integrating contacts into forms would be helpful)

Ana-Astrid Molina
​What's the difference between Gmail labels and groups?

Google for Nonprofits
​Labels are like folders, you can not send emails or invite labels to a calendar event.

GACI Global
​Can all email recipients see each other's email addresses?

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​good question GACI Global

Bennett PTSA
​Can your members unsubscribe from a group?

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​yes - can volunteers unsubscribe?

Google for Nonprofits
​Yes, members can unsubscribe: https://support.google.com/groups/ans...

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​LOVE THIS TUTORIAL

Google for Nonprofits
​We are very glad to hear that! Thank you for your kind feedback!

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​Is the unsubscribe within the form?

patience Roberts
​This is very helpful. Thank you

Gen W
​So are you saying all volunteers would see the emails from the other volunteers, or is it only the sender that gets the responses?

Melissa Abernathy
​can volunteers sign up on forms without having a google account? Can they be added to a google group without a google account? A lot of our volunteers are not techies & can't easily/won't adapt.

Ana-Astrid Molina
​Is this feature the same one that appears in the ad in window, where you create users?

Ana-Astrid Molina
​Admin homw window

Barb Lownsbury
​Can you hide email addresses?

Rainie B. Jueschke, CFRE
​Can you demonstrate how document share works?

GACI Global
​@Ruth's Way they put a comma in a separate field & then combined the 2 fields (email address & comma) to make a third field with the email address with a comma after it & copied & pasted that field.

Kathleen Beisly
​I missed the first part of the call, where do we find this function?

NC GreenPower
​This is GREAT, by the way - very helpful. Learning more about how much functionality Google offers. :)

Oklahoma Performing Arts
​say that one more time please

Al Wilson
​@Barb Lownsbury Everyhting they said is true.

Alicia Harrison
​Can they respond to just the group administrator?

Al Wilson
​@Alicia Harrison Yes, that is one of the options.

Google for Nonprofits
​You can add non-Google Accounts to a Group. People without a Google Account can also fill in forms, with some limitations. Please see this: https://support.google.com/docs/threa...

Kathleen Beisly
​Is the Google site private or public? We'd want to ensure that our volunteer names are kept private

John Martin
​Hi, we have a domain for our non-profit but we'll have another domains with same name but special extension, is possible use this other domain with my non profir account?

elijah montgomery smith
​What is the difference between the old and new google sites?

Ouida Duncan
​is there an additional cost to set up and/or maintain Google Sites?

Google for Nonprofits
​The Site can be shared with specific people only. E.g., you can have one for your Board and one for the Volunteers. Sharing is very similar to Docs sharing.

Google for Nonprofits
​Google Sites is free as part of G Suite for Nonprofits!

Roy Jefferson
​Is it possible to rewatch this livestream?

John Martin
​Yes Roy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Google for Nonprofits
​Yes, the recording will be available through this same link.

John Martin
​I'm not from Google, I only saw tha past replies!

Google for Nonprofits
​The new Google Sites has an improved UX and improved customization options!

Ouida Duncan
​is there an e-commerce feature on Google sites to collect donations?

Google for Nonprofits
​No, we do not recommend to use Sites for external websites.

Monica Metzler
​So do people have to "ACCEPT" the invitation in the email in order to view the site? What if they miss that email?

Google for Nonprofits
​For external-facing website, Google has partnered with companies that offer website creation that doesn't require that you know HTML. https://support.google.com/a/answer/3...

Google for Nonprofits
​If they miss the email, the website will be visible anyway, as long as they have access!

Jim Dakin
​Is there a "lite" version which people can deal with on their cell phones? I deal with older adults who struggle even to use Doodle. Generally find myself falling back to simple email approaches.

Google for Nonprofits
​Please see details on how to publish and share your Google Site: https://support.google.com/sites/answ....

Step Up For Mental Health
​Make sure it's just 24, because the host is 1 person, just a tip.

Google for Nonprofits
​@Jim Dakin, what product are you referring to?

Take Back Our Airwaves
​Can you do menus on Google Sites? What are the tools for managing a complex website with more than one page?

Alissa CenterstageTheatre
​​is there a way for forms entries to feed into a calendar, ie. people sign up for a date slot and it feeds to our calendar?

Step Up For Mental Health
​love this new feature, thanks!

Cheryl Gowing
​Do users have to download anything when going into a hangout for the first time?

Google for Nonprofits
​You can create different sections on Google Sites, however, you have limited customization options, as the tool is meant for internal use.

snoww13
​through google sites, is there a way to send sms text messages?

Google for Nonprofits
​@Alissa, Form doesn't yet send a calendar invite. You may explore custom calendars with appointments slots! https://support.google.com/calendar/a...

Google for Nonprofits
​Texting isn't available on Google Sites.

Alissa CenterstageTheatre
​thank you

Google for Nonprofits
​As we are approaching the end of the livestream, please do not forget to share your feedback. It takes only 2 minutes and it is very valuable to us! https://forms.gle/6uu6LwFqaFEynMKGA

Rainie B. Jueschke, CFRE
​sounds like this works best for a meeting where there is one presenter in front of a computer with camera and microphone?

Tatyana Ferguson
​For the site, can the site we create be embedded on our website ?

Barb Lownsbury
​Super helpful Ladies! Thank you ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Cheryl Gowing
​will the recording include the chat content? You have a number of very useful links included in your responses ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Gender Bands
​Can I make a calendar for the volunteer group and have another calendar for myself?

Barb Lownsbury

Google for Nonprofits
​It will, and we'll share the most useful resources as a comment!

Rainie B. Jueschke, CFRE
​Is there anyway to participate in a google hangout so we know what it is like? A sample or something?

Step Up For Mental Health
​great webinar! More please, keep them coming! Glad sites is added some new features, will check it out.

Kathleen Beisly
​@Cheryl, you can copy-paste the chat content into a word doc
