The Member Talk season runs from September to June. As we are approaching the end of the 2022-23 season, we’d like some feedback to help with our planning for the 2023-24 season.   

For the past few years, all Member Talks have been offered online using the Zoom platform. However, the Society is offering more in-person events. Should Member Talks be one of the Society’s in-person programs? 

Some of the benefits of hosting Member Talks online are:

  • Members can attend without leaving home (no night or bad weather driving).
  • Speakers can live outside of Calgary (no travel limitations or costs).
  • Renting a hall is not required.
  • Session can be recorded for later viewing.
  • 500 members can participate.  

Some of the benefits of hosting in-person Member Talks

  • Gatherings provide member-to-member engagements.
  • Personal digital devices are not required.
  • Members can meet representatives of the Society board and staff.
  • The speaker can be asked questions directly.

About Scheduling Member Talks

Member Talks are usually held on the first Thursday of the month from 7:00 to 8:30 pm: October, November, December, February, March, April, May, and June (unless there is a large event held close to the Member Talk date, February when a Think Spring! Event is held, for example). The September Member Talk is held with the Annual General Meeting.
