Embark PCA team has been anticipating a recovery conference/workshop for almost a year. When COVID 19 hit, we thought it would pass quickly and we'd be back on track. But life has reminded us once again that we are not in charge, nor do we understand/know it all. That's an understatement.
Since so many of us find ourselves in near isolation, the idea of an event seemed even more appealing. We decided to go ahead with the 2-day workshop from Faces and Voices of Recovery. We were on our way.
But in the planning of Bootcamp, we realized that in many ways it just seemed like another 2 day zoom meeting-which is really challenging.
So we added the Whova app to bring in a "live conference" feel. There are virtual exhibitor spaces (43) and a community board which 52 people have already signed up for.
We now have 252 registrations, 18 speakers, 43 exhibitors, and 2 days to connect and grow our Colorado Recovery Community.
You can check out the event at www.pcacolorado.com/rco-bootcamp.
There are buttons at the top to download the desktop and the mobile app. We suggest using your desktop/laptop for viewing/listening to the sessions and use the mobile to connect to other attendees.
