What is expected of a Host?
Host a conversation between November 16 through November 20, 2020. Most conversations will last approximately 40 to 90 minutes.
Invite 8 to 12 guests. Gather virtually using the Hopin.to platform.
View the online training that will be posted on our resources page towards the end of October.
Complete a post-event survey and ask your guests to do so as well. This is a crucial part of On the Table as the survey allows us to collect the creative ideas and actionable plans discussed during the event.
Should I register as a public or private table?
A private table means you will invite specific guests to your table and it will not be listed on our website. A public table is open to anyone to attend and will be listed on our website.
Is there training available?
All hosts are required to complete training. Training will take up to an hour to complete. Please review the Training Page.
What happens after the conversation?
Share your stories. We encourage all participants to share insights on social media using #OnTheTableMacon, submitting their stories, or emailing us at OnTheTable@cfcga.org.
Complete a short survey. Be part of the community report. Share your experiences, thoughts and ideas that arose from these conversations. We want to hear from every voice!
Look for the Community Report. The Community Foundation will share a community report highlighting the ideas, conversations, themes and outcomes that emerge from On the Table. This data will inform efforts to improve our community in the months ahead.
Apply for Conversation to Action Grant. On The Table is about identifying issues, advancing solutions and taking action ourselves, not waiting on someone else to fix it. We hope these conversations spur ideas for civic engagement and impact that individuals can do on their own. CFCG will offer a mini-grant program for ideas that require a little seed funding to get started.
