We are fortunate to have a member of our community who wants to plan a monthly conference call for Café organizers across the country to come together and share experiences and ideas that will help build and keep our Cafés vibrant and growing.  See below Marshall's suggestion and details on how to join the call:

Fellow Memory Catalyst Leaders, 

After working with a local team to develop a model we can use to roll out multiple Cafes in San Diego, we now have six scheduled venues, and over a dozen more sites asking to host Cafes. Now I'd like to learn what I can from others and thought it might be interesting to talk with others through a live conference call.

I'm happy to host the call and wondered how many others would be interested in participating to share and learn from each other. My motto has always been, "None of us is as smart as all of us".  I talked with Debora about this months ago and she was supportive, yet I wasn't ready to start this until I had my own Memory Cafes launched with some personal experience to share. 

Anticipating some interest, I'm providing a link with some time slots that work for me. If you are interested, choose ALL the time slots that also work for you. Once we have 6 or more respondents, I'll share the slot with the highest participation and notify everyone.


Once we have the time scheduled, I'll provide the dial-in number for the conference call. I hope you will be able to join us and share what you've experienced.

Hope this works for some, as I'd love to meet you and talk with you about your experiences and share mine now that we're launching multiple Cafes in San Diego, with more to follow.

Best regards,

Marshall Stanek

  • The conference call will be from 2:00-3:00 pm PST on Monday, April 20th, 2015.  

    Call in number:  (712) 775-7031 with Meeting ID 951-150-913.

    Hope you can be there!

  • Have we figured out a time for this call yet?  I hope I didn't miss it!  Susan

  • P.S. The times listed on the Doodle are pacific time. When this was sent out to the Boston Percolator network, we had several who responded, but I'd like more representation across the country. Please help by attending the first call, as that will begin to define what the regular meeting time will be for future calls and will let you learn how you might expand this melting pot of ideas.

    Best regards,
