"Members Only" A New Space To Connect! December 23, 2020
Season’s greetings members of Jack’s Caregiver Coalition!
I wanted to share with you a new online space that we have created just for you.
We've been listening and we’ve heard some of you have been having trouble getting our program events on your calendar. We’ve also heard that it’s a pain to find the correct zoom links for our virtual offerings. And we’ve heard there's an interest in knowing more about your fellow members and how you can support and connect outside of our events.
Which is why I’m excited to share with you that we just launched a brand new “Members Only” page of our website for the Jacks and the Jills! It’s password protected, and since this is only version 1.0, it’s only going to keep get better!
This new page currently contains two helpful calendars:
- Members Only Programming Calendar: A more elaborate programming calendar than the public sees on our public programming calendar. It has all the zoom links you need built into it! It also has an easy button to add each event to your calendar. For our virtual programs we are no longer requiring our members to register, simply log into this page to easily join us on zoom.
- Birthdays and Hard Days Calendar: Currently the only dates listed are mine. This is because no information will be added about any member in this space without their consent. There is a form on the page for you to share any dates you would like share with your fellow Jack’s members. Birthdays are self-explanatory I think. Hard days are those days you’ve really struggled with. Could be the date a diagnosis was received. The day your loved one passed away. Or maybe a more surprising date that many in your life don’t know about because they couldn’t understand, but your Jack’s community could understand and could support you in a more meaningful way. The hope is that a date shared here will result in our community rallying around and supporting that member in meaningful and tangible ways.
Our “Jack” members will continue to also have access to our password protected “Jacks Only” page which contains the profiles of our Jack-to-Jack Coaches.
If any of you are unable to access any of our password protected content for any reason please let us know and we will send you a link to reset your password.
Lastly, we’d would love to hear about any more meaningful “members only” content that you would like to see. In other words, how else can we show up for each other?
We hope you find this space helpful and easy to navigate, if not – please share your questions or concerns!
All our best to you and your family this holiday season,
Jack's Caregiver Coalition
