June Memory Café Conference Call

Memory Café Catalyst members,

I want to let you know about the second national Memory Café conference call scheduled for next week, June 15th at noon PST!  

See below details from the organizer Marshall Stanek:

Please join our Memory Café Leaders National Conference call. We’re excited to have some of the pioneers of the U.S. Memory Cafés (Beth Soltzberg, John & Susan McFadden, and Ken Capron) sharing how they’ve been able to get so many Memory Cafés started (about 30) and how they are currently finding ways to make them financially sustainable. What are they doing to help offset Café expenses? What other ideas are they working on to improve on this?

During the call, I’m hoping to trial some collaborative web tools to capture what’s being shared so we can access it later and continue building on this foundation of experience. More details about that later…just be ready to access web links if they are shared at the time of the call.

  • Hi Angela! Unfortunately, the calls are not happening anymore. If I hear of more interest, I can contact the former organizer (Marshall Stanek in San Diego) to see if he is able to resume.  They offered a really nice opportunity for connection and idea sharing.  

  • Are these calls still coordinated? If so, I'd be interested in attending. Thanks!

  • This is a message from Marshall about today's call.  Sorry for this late notice!

    Greetings Memory Cafe Leaders!

    This is a reminder that our next National Conference call is scheduled for Tuesday, October 20 @ 11am Pacific time. 

    We have a special guest for our call (see below). Thresa will be speaking about the work she has done with Jyette Lotvig in New Mexico and Ken Capron in Maine. One aspect of her efforts is to help build a web based national directory of Memory Cafes that will help people better discover a Cafe in their local area. The interface is expected to be easy to administrate for us to maintain information.
