CVH Webinars use a familiar format devoting the bulk of the event to speaker presentations on a specific topic with a Q & A period at the end.
CVH Fireside Chats use a new, interactive format for shorter presentations on the experiences of content experts and state participants in a live streaming format allowing for greater interaction and dialogue. Both Webinars and Fireside Chats are recorded for future viewing.
CVH Virtual Roundtables are peer-to-peer learning opportunities that follow webinars and Fireside Chats at a later date to continue the discussion in a more informal way. Several sessions of each Virtual Roundtable are offered to allow for smaller groups and to accommodate busy schedules. Virtual Roundtable sessions are not recorded.
