CHART Member Virtual Training Forums (VTFs): COVID-19 Topics

To offer members an opportunity to support and connect with each other when we cannot meet face-to-face, we are starting small virtual training forums for CHART Members only to get together over Zoom and share ideas on issues they are facing. We are starting with COVID-19 topics.

Topics will be focused and groups will be limited to 12 so everyone gets a chance to ask and answer questions.

The first three virtual traing forums are listed below. Note:
