6. Collaborate after every broadcast
Change Ourselves: Everybody is a Producer.
A weekly event: The local chapters of the National Association can opt to be involved in each weekly collaboration event, to enjoin members to participate, and to claim it as a member benefit.
These weekly, online collaboration events will be scheduled to begin immediately after an episode airs.
1. Open to all viewers & visitors
These events would be opened first to all viewers of that episode of the show, and then to all those visitors to the web who observe that it is a realtime event, happening now!
The local viewers will be invited each week to attend by the voice of their PBS-member station and the host of the event would be identified. The subject matter would first be the key ideas presented from that episode and ways such ideas can be implemented locally within a business and within a community.
2. Focus group and short meetings with your own group
Because the meeting time will be in a consistent time slot each week and be made public on each state's resource page, people could join the event from around the world.
3. No cost initially
Such events usually cost substantial dollars. Because this is a new model which can introduce many people to these technologies, for now these will be free events for everyone involved.
4. Local, local, local
The local association's chapters can reach out personally to their membership and potential membership. The local chapters would be participating with their Economic Development Commissions, other local national trade association chapters, people of the SBA, SBDC, or SCORE chapter, and even people from the offices of the governor, mayor, the station and the local sponsors!
There would only be 52 such events a year and the perceived value of that event will increase as the participation grows.
5. Comments & Questions
