But it’s true.
We can’t predict the future but we can study, listen, read, learn and make decisions respecting everyone’s ability to choose what is right for them. You have a choice. You can attend GCUC in person if you’re comfortable or you can attend GCUC online if you’re not.
Convene is a great partner for us because they have spent the pandemic building out an impressive and robust online portal so that their hybrid offering is a notch above the rest. Through the portal, you’ll be able to chat with other attendees (if they opt in), see all our sponsors online and ask questions when we have Q&As during the event.
We’re even going to fast track the turnaround and make the conference viewable overnight so our friends around the world can watch the event in their time zone.
In regards to masks, we will follow the guidance of our partners at Convene while taking into account the laws and regulations in the city of New York, the state of New York and the good old US of A.
We want everyone to make the choice that is right for them.
While we can’t predict the future, we can feel the energy and excitement of our community building and we wanted to embrace this opportunity to meet and gather and share.
If we did learn anything at all in the pandemic it’s how important we hold:
A chance encounter
We can’t replicate those online so we choose to have an in person event as well.
We hope you’ll join us, but if for any reason you can’t, we’ll hold you a seat for next time and hope to see you online.
If you’re down to travel and ready to hug then get your GCUC ticket now, they are limited.
I’m saving you a hug,
