Based on topics of interest, Group Talks last an hour and can be one-time offerings or recurring (weekly, bi-monthly or monthly). A Group Talk can be a Discussion, Debate, Mind Meld (Ex: Brainstorming), Swap (Ex: Recipes, Patterns, Tips), or Meeting. Participants can dial-in toll free, or attend online in the VoiceChat meeting room.
Note: Please contact us if you need any help. We appreciate your efforts and hope you enjoy your VIP rewards!
Once you’ve decided on the type of Group Talk you want to host, you’ll need to come up with a: (1) short descriptive title (for example, "Solar Heating"; (2) brief description of the topic(s) for discussion; (3) date and time.
Note: Do not host a Group Talk to advertise products or services, although you’re welcome to share a link to your website/blog/media or other resources pertaining to the topic.
