Alliance Community Roundup December 2020

Alliance Community Roundup December 2020

2020 was a year that expanded our digital work lexicon whilst most of us worked remotely. Teams, Zoom and Skype are now common verbs as well as online meeting providers. We used many different instant messaging services and online forums such as Slack, Glasscubes and Discourse to source advice and support from colleagues. Whilst online meetings involved Jamboards, Mural, Miro or the Zoom whiteboard instead of a physical flipchart.  

Here at the Alliance we have an online forum called the Alliance Community designed to connect members with each other to share their experience and crowdsource solutions to challenges we all face. This year, nearly 100 new members signed up to our forum which saw nearly 400 different posts about everything from partnership requests to swapping experiences of holding remote Annual General Meetings (AGMs). We now convene over 140 different member organisations and nearly 300 individuals via our forum.  

Here is a summary of December’s activity, which included:
