ARE YOU REGISTERED FOR THE FEBRUARY WEBINAR?

The best way to learn and understand your point positions and how they fit the over-all VTA process is to participate in the webinars where you can ask questions in real-time. If any members of the Steering Team have not yet registered for the webinar on February 7, please do so (links below).

TIPS AND USES

As you work through the process, you see that it is crucial that you keep a watch on the VTA process submission deadlines. You will have time to go through each step of the process satisfactorily if you don't let deadlines slide. Keeping your active Team calendar of who will do what and when definitely keeps you on track.

Participating in the February webinar with us will give you guidance on this month's submission: the Vision Statement.

We understand that not all members can attend all live webinars; for your convenience, the webinars are linked to the VTA process page the day after each webinar. Remember, you can watch these on many different devices, making them very versatile and portable.

Be sure to hold a Steering Team work session as soon as possible after the webinar. We strongly recommend participating in the webinar together and having the work session right after. Tina is available until 8:00 pm every Wednesday. This is a great time to follow up with her about anything that wasn't clear during the webinar.

You may also schedule a team conference call with Tina on other Wednesdays or between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Be sure and sign up for a team conference call anytime you feel the least bit unsure of any of the VTA steps!
