Looking for a few great facilitators!

VIDM facilitators are the foundation of our success. We simply could not do what we do without the support of these outstanding volunteers.

What does a VIDM facilitator do?

  • Before the conference facilitators work with conference presenters, helping them to use the webconferencing technology to enhance their presentation
  • During the conference facilitators moderate the speaker’s session, keeping time and providing space for audience questions and discussions

Each facilitator works with the guidance of a session moderator, Lorraine.VIDM2013(1)assisting before and during the conference. Training is provided. Moderator positions are available for experienced VIDM facilitators.

If you have experience using webconferencing technology and would like to add something interesting to your resume, apply to become a VIDM facilitator today.

Facilitator information and application forms are available HERE
