Here at CASC we are exploring ways to help all CASC members connect with each other for support during the COVID-19 pandemic. A group of CASC member education and programming staff have been meeting up via ZOOM to discuss ways in which CASC members can collectively come together to assist parents and educators with informal STEM engagement while practicing physical isolation at their homes.
An invitation to join the scheduled Friday calls has been extended to all CASC member staff working in programs, education, outreach, camps and childcare. An email with an invitation to the meeting was sent out yesterday (April 1, 2020). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you did not receive an invitation and would like to join.

COVID-19 Support for Touring Exhibitions & Museums: Video Call - Webinar/Google Hangout
CASC Affiliate Member, Shipping Monster/Storage Monster convened a google hangout discussion last week to specifically address challenges related to travelling exhibitions during the COVID-19 crisis. Their initial discussion included 30 people from across the world and they’ve extended an invitation to CASC members to join the next call.
Wed Apr 8, 2020 2pm – 3pm Eastern Time. Will be hosted every 2 weeks.
An email with the link to the meeting will be sent to sales and exhibition contacts in the CASC network by Monday April 6, 2020. Please contact email@example.com if you did not receive an invitation and would like to join.
They have also created a LinkedIn Group, COVID-19 Support for Touring Exhibitions & Museums, because of the need to share information, news, and thought knowledge between museums and peers. Join here.
> Future CASC Community Discussions
We’ve heard from numerous members that they’d like CASC to provide access to virtual community discussions so they can connect with peers during this challenging time. CASC is working on launching a variety of scheduled group video chats that will be open to our members including a CEO Forum. These invitations will go out through our contact list. If you have a colleague who has not yet signed up to our newsletter, please share this link with them so that they will receive the invitation to join the group chat.
