Adding check boxes to a Google spreadsheet is awesome! Thanks for sharing, Zack!

I use Google Forms the most, so I am less familiar with playing in Docs and Sheets.

Podcast Club Meeting #2


Thursday, March 5 at 11:30am, Prairie Point Loft (Lunch and Chat)


Focus 3 Podcast - https://www.focus3.com/podcast, #59 – How to Have Great Meetings (31:22)


Listen to the podcast and be ready to dive into discussion on effective Meetings.

Our 3rd podcast will be Armchair Expert episode #179 with Chris Voss https://armchairexpertpod.com/pods/chris-voss 


Thanks! I just learned about Armchair Expert recently when I heard Dax Shepard guest on a different podcast. Can't wait to check this one out!

Could you share the name of the Podcast that you were listening to? It sounds like a great one for the Podcast Club to listen to and discuss!

Rockie and I are meeting this afternoon to work on our proposal for Marketing! We'll keep everyone posted!

Sounds good! We were chatting the other day and comparing resources for those kinds of guidelines and how other districts/companies/organizations are handling social media takeovers and influencers.

They are also looking for Student Ambassadors who are participants who will be promoting their programming through their own social media outlets. 

These could be great ways for us to leverage the micro influencers within our own programs.

A few of us had a great discussion yesterday! We will be meeting again on Thursday, March 5th from 12:30-1:30pm at Prairie Point. We welcome suggestions for topics to cover via podcast and hope more people join us in March!

Hope to see you this Thursday for Podcast Club! Come prepared with other topics you would like to cover next time :)
