Introducing PASS Community Connects

During these unprecedented circumstances, we have been working on ways to help our community to continue learning and connecting with one another. As such, we are pleased to roll out a new initiative called PASS Community Connects.

PASS Community Connects offer the opportunity for up to a maximum of 20 participants to join a 30-minute GoToMeeting session, share webcams, and connect with one another from around the world. Each session will be structured around a topic and co-hosted by two moderators to help facilitate interaction. The intent of PASS Community Connects sessions are to be casual, social online discussions. We are limiting the number of attendees to help ensure a quality conversation, where everyone has the chance to speak.
