Community Conversations

Each day of 21NTC is an opportunity to make new friends and network with your peers based on shared interests. Conversations occur in the morning, midday, and afternoon of each day, so you have lots of opportunities to join in.

Conversations are when the community really comes together to have fun and talk about a variety of topics, not all of which have to have an educational focus. Start by reviewing the schedule of proposed Community Conversations below. Don’t see what you’re looking for? You’re welcome to suggest a conversation you’d like to host. Submissions suggesting company marketing or self-promotion will not be approved. What sorts of things can you discuss?

  • You’re in communications and want to discuss social media engagement.
  • You want to trade ideas for recruiting virtual volunteers.
  • You don’t understand anything that happened on WandaVision and have questions about the larger MCU.
  • You want to meet people from other offices of your national organization.
  • You’re having trouble with the honeycombs brioche stitch and need support from fellow knitters.
  • You’re rolling out a new program and want to hear how other attendees reached community members without computer access.
  • You feel strongly that Taylor Swift has entered a golden age and want to meet other Swifties.
