Meet The Teachers (MTT) is an annual event hosted by SCCQG, on Zoom, using the interactive Meeting format (not webinar), open to all member guilds. This Program is a selection of teachers who are given three minutes to introduce themselves and speak (and share screen) about the lectures, trunk shows, classes that they offer to guilds. It is a fun event, fast paced and interesting. You’ll meet teachers/presenters you may not have heard of while being entertained by what they offer. You’ll see their projects and see them live, onscreen. There is no cost to member guilds to attend.
MTT is normally scheduled from 10am to 1pm, Pacific Time. At noon, the presenters are given their own individual breakout rooms. Guild Member attendees may then move into and out of those rooms to talk to presenters one-on-one, to ask questions, discuss travel, dates and any other pertinent information.
This event is to assist Program Chairs in finding teachers/presenters for their guilds. Information and links of all Affiliate Member Teachers can be found on the Affiliates page. [link to Affiliates] Multiple members from each guild are encouraged to attend and chat with the presenters to assist their guild in learning more about potential presenters for their guild.
April 8, 2023 is the date for the next Meet The Teachers. To receive an invitation to attend the guild must be a member in good standing of SCCQG (Membership) and current officers should be updated on the Membership page in order for them to receive, via email, the invitation to attend. Invitations are sent to Presidents, Program Chairs and SCCQG Reps of each member guild on April 1.
In the past this was held in person, with travel being a major barrier to attendance. When the event transitioned to Zoom it became far more accessible and attendance is growing annually. In 2022 over 125 guild members registered to attend to watch 24 presenters.
Presenters must be current and in good standing Affiliate Members of SCCQG (link to Membership Page). Invitations to present are sent via newsletter on February 1. Presenters are *required* to attend a rehearsal prior to the event. Live (not pre-recorded) presentations are preferred. Presenters *must* be available to the membership during the Breakout Room session of the Program. Teachers/Presenters have been known to book their year in engagements during this event.
The popularity of this event grows annually and using Zoom allows for easier attendance than an in-person event. SCCQG intends to continue using Zoom for membership and board meetings.
