Changes to VBR’s Member Directory Format

Member Directory and Online Platform Graphic

You may have noticed that you have not received a new Member Directory lately. Have no fear; we have not forgotten. In fact, we have been spending time investigating an online platform to enhance your member experience.

For those of you unfamiliar with it, let us introduce Global Classroom, a Vermont-based company originally created to host online distance learning. Realizing the valuable social tool they’ve created, Global Classroom has begun expanding its client base beyond educational institutions. We are pleased to announce that the Roundtable will be partnering with Global Classroom to provide you with a secure and private Roundtable Members-Only site.

Noteworthy features include: member directory, calendar of events, discussion forum capabilities, a one-stop shop for downloadable documents for working groups. Smartphone apps will soon be available to further improve the portability of your membership directory. The site will be live soon in this last quarter of the year. Expect an email with your login information in the near future.

Many of you have spoken and we heard. We are attempting to honor you and our environment by cutting down on our paper consumption. However, if you prefer to have a printed copy of the member directory also, we will be happy to oblige.

Contact: Sherra Bourget, [email protected] or 865-0410 with questions, concerns or to reserve a printed copy.
