The most successful Connect Groups will be ideas that you’re personally excited about. They are clear, comfortable, and most of all, fun. Pick at least 3 meet up dates for your Connect Group to meet within the upcoming quarter at Canvas (January - March, April - June, July - September, October - December).
Submit an application for Hosting a Connect Group on the Canvas app or online. After you’ve submitted your group plans, you’ll work with a Connect Group Leader to confirm the details for your launch day, and complete a sixty-second background check and waiver. You’ll also be resourced with a Connect Group Launch Kit to help guide you through the rest of the process.
Now you’ll invite your friends to jump in with you. If you’re a part of a Rooted Family, consider inviting them to host the Connect Group with you and to invite their friends along. Your Connect Group will also be publicly communicated on the Connect Groups webpage and in the Canvas app.
You’ll remind your Connect Group sign ups of the event details a couple days before the meet-up, as well as collect any necessary waivers and remind them what to bring.
You can use the email follow-up template included in your Launch Kit to thank people for attending, collect any photos and video, and hear back about their experience.
