IT PARTNER NEEDED FOR VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
Due to the health precautions deemed necessary for controlling the Covid19 pandemic, in-person conferences designed to help students and their families learn about educational opportunities have been either cancelled or reduced to making video calls to advisors and Googling for information.
With the assistance of either a recognized major educational institution or technology company, we would like to streamline the process to restore the lost communication and orientation events.
Access to and familiarity with the HopIn conference platform is strongly preferred.
The events sponsored by the 100 BMTE are not limited to any group or ethnicity, but rather intended to expand opportunities to families of the Triangle Region that have been historically unable or less able to take advantage of programs and events due to financial limitations, especially during this pandemic.
No in-person contact with students or coordinators is likely.

- This project would be twice/year. The time commitment will depend upon proficiency and tech resources previously developed, but a commitment of six hours/week is a good estimation for a two-month preparation.
- The ideal volunteers are those with experience with creating and managing events using Hop In or equivalent virtual platform.
