Dear GSFL Members,
In an effort to strengthen the bond between all members, I am starting a GSFL Regulars’ Table. Once
a month, we can all meet virtually in a relaxed atmosphere to get to know each other and chat a bit.
To be fair to all our members across the world, I will try to serve all relevant time zones and alternate
in the scheduling. Also, the contents or activities for each Regular’s Table will vary. The details for
each meeting will be announced via our different member channels.
The first GSFL Regulars’ Table will take place on Thursday, 15 April 2021 at 19:00 CEST (Central
European Time). You are all invited. Our first meeting will involve a “speed friending” exercise to give
us a chance to get to know one another better by talking about relaxed topics of interest in a
changing set of small groups. With every new group, a new discussion question will be introduced.
To take part in our Regular’s Table, please write a short message to:
firstname.lastname@example.org. In your message, please be sure to include your time zone.
All registrants will be sent the all necessary log in information before our first meeting. All GSFL
members are eligible to take part.
Do you have great ideas for activities for the Regular’s Table? Do you have technical or organisational
questions about the Regulars’ Table you would like to ask? Would you like to have a chat about
options for virtual meetings? Just send me an email to the above address.
I’d be more than happy to help you!
Hope to see you soon!
your GSFL Virtual Conference Coordinator
