IVAA Coffee Chats, Cafe Club VA & Cafe` Virtual (Spanish) are more than just coffee!
Have you joined us for one of our morning or evening Coffee Chats yet? Did you even know we HAVE Coffee Chats? The Coffee Chats and the Spanish Cafe Club VA & Cafe` Virtual are casual “meetings of the minds” to talk about all things regarding working virtually. These online chats are open to both members and non-members so you are always welcome to bring a friend. We know, safety in numbers and all. 🙂
At the chats, the moderators introduce themselves and then allow the participants to also do a quick introduction. Then, the floor is open for questions, comments, brainstorming- anything goes. Each chat is different and unique in that the topics are all determined by you, the participants. We talk a lot about everyone’s favorite- how to get new clients. But, we have chatted about subcontracting, contracts, social media and more. The moderators also try to take a little time to show people around the IVAA website. Many people don’t know about our forms library or all of the amazing videos we have online for members. Future-members are always excited to see those things as well as the Request for Proposal bulletin board and the types of jobs available to virtual workers.
The Coffee Chats are held Mondays at either 10-11 am ET or, alternating Mondays from 5-6 pm ET. The Spanish Cafe Club VA is usually the third Tuesday of the month from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm. Cafe` Virtual is typically the first Thursday at 6:30 pm. These FREE chats are a great way to meet fellow IVAA members, chat about our common goals or struggles and maybe even learn something new. You can find the Chats on the calendar on the homepage of our website at www.IVAA.org. By clicking on the links on the calendar, you can then register online and be prompted to join us at the proper time. If you follow us on Twitter, Facebook or are in the members-only Facebook group, you will see weekly reminders there.
We’d love to chat with you! Pick a time, grab your favorite mug and join us!
