    ZOOM links in 
11/28 LINKS 
    (2 days early, more time to create).

This is our annual SIG Holiday GIFTS EXCHANGE. It is a joint Nov/Dec meeting and the agenda is one that we have had for 23 years. We gather to share TIPS & TRICKS that have impacted us either professionally or personally during 2023. 

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: The 2023 Change SIG GIFT EXCHANGE 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 have created a document in Google Slides, where you can add links, pictures, or text on your own slide. Your REGISTRATION confirmation email contains the document link.

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 2023, 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 are instructions that will guide you through the process of creating a slide for your gift in the GIFTS Exchange confirmation email when you REGISTER or get your ZOOM LINK email.

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

  • You can send your responses to Mary Charles Blakebrough 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.
  • A big thanks to _____________ who will be our Zoom Host
