Change SIG - 12/03/2021

12/03/2021 8:30 AM | Mary Charles Blakebrough (Administrator)

Big 2021 AH-HA for You? 21st Annual Tips & Tricks Exchange  (8:30-10:30 - Bring your own coffee/tea/snacks) 
NOTE: Gifting will be by Google SLIDES again - instructions & LINK coming mid-December.

This is our annual SIG Holiday TIPS & TRICKS EXCHANGE. It is a joint Nov/Dec meeting and the agenda is one that we have had for 20 years. We gather to share something that has impacted us either professionally or personally during 2021. 

You 'gift' us by sharing a book, a tip, a technique, a brain-friendly recipe, a picture, a poem, a great quote, or anything else that has inspired, pleased or touched you in the past year. If it has been surprisingly successful, that's even better.

NOTE: 2021 Tips or Tricks will be shared with the group over ZOOM. For some Zoom clues:
 Getting Friendly with Zoom

To enable our sharing in this virtual meeting, we'll create a document in Google Slides, where you can add links, pictures, or text on your own slide.

NOTE 1: Be sure to add your contact information, as it's our way of exchanging business cards.
NOTE 2: Sign up, even if you have a conflict, so you can add your GIFT this year and be able to view other gifts later.

We can then share these slides in the meeting, one by one, giving each person a few minutes to say something they are grateful for in 2021, and then explain their gift as we go around the virtual room. 

At the end, we'll have a super cool artifact for ourselves and to share with anyone who couldn't be with us in real time.

If you're new to Google Slides, it's just like PowerPoint, only simpler. There will be instructions that will guide you through the process of creating a slide for your gift in the Gift Exchange document.  

NOTE: If this process creates a barrier to your participation, don't sweat it!

  • You can send your responses to T White on email at and she will create your slide for you
  • Or you can share your screen during the Change SIG and show us whatever you like as your gift.
