Office Hours Registration Form
SRE Network members and prospective members are eligible to sign up by July 30th to meet one-on-one (or in small groups if your organization would like to bring more than one representative) with an expert to discuss a content area relevant to their organization in August 2021.
We encourage members to use this opportunity to ask questions, problem solve, idea-share, get feedback, or begin a longer term working relationship. For these consultations, each expert is offering a limited number of one-hour sessions on a first come first serve basis. If this offering is successful, we look forward to building it out further to offer additional and expanded availability in the future. You can also join our waiting list by emailing Bobby Lima at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch if additional spots open up.
