FAQs for Hosting your ELE Cohort Event

Last Updated Friday, November 30, 2018

I am interested in hosting a peer-networking event for my ELE Cohort.

ELE Cohort members can contact Dirk Tussing with the date to have your upcoming session added to the ELE's online event calendar.

What support will be available and what responsibilities will I have to host an event?

  • After a date is confirmed with Dirk Tussing, ELE will add to our online event calendar. As we get closer to the date, we like to create key topic(s) and an agenda.
    (click here for an example of a calendar entry which includes the Focus Topic Area(s) and link to a one-page agenda).

  • ELE will provide event coordination services such as sending out invites, monitoring the registrations, providing first line support calls and attending the event to help provide additional support.

  • One week prior to your event, ELE will send you a current attendee list.
    This allows you to review the list of registrations and any individual on a waiting list to compare with the resources your company has available.

  • Day of event, ELE will plan to arrive 30 60 minutes prior the start of the event to provide additional assistance.
    If you are hosting an afternoon event, we appreciate it if you would provide a light lunch for the attendees. This helps us create some informal networking while external participants' arrival times tend to vary.

  • Post event, we will provide you the electronic copies of any portion of your case study that we are able to archive for extended sharing with other members either in the Member-Area or of our website or as an unlisted URL distributed by email.

  • If a virtual event virtual (e.g., Adobe Connect, WebEx, or Zoom), ELE will arrange for a technology test several weeks before the event to help avoiding any unexpected compatibility issues.
