About the workshop

What’s the right way to run a hybrid event? There’s no right answer - but there is a right set of questions to consider before planning your meeting! Join us (either in-person or online) for a lively learning lab focused on best practices for planning and executing hybrid meetings; dealing with the unexpected; and supporting equity and inclusion in a hybrid environment. You’ll benefit from the combined wisdom of MAFN members, and learn who to call on when clients need more hybrid expertise than you’ve got in your back pocket.

Yes, you read that right! We are wrapping up this season’s workshops by hosting a hybrid meeting about planning and running hybrid meetings!

We’ll end with a brief look at MAFN’s new strategic plan and our annual report. Plus, you'll get a sneak peek at a new approach for workshops and learning opportunities coming in our 2023-2024 season!
