Workshop Update for Pilot Members

Email sent September 8, 2105

Hi pilot friends!

We're still building out the materials for the Office 365 workshops, but we now have enough for you to begin testing the materials and planning your workshop.

First thing's first: please book me as soon as possible for a 30 minute call so that we can plan your workshop together. Please book be within the next 10 days. You can schedule me at


Attached to this email is a draft of the trainer guide. It walks you through all the steps of setting up other nonprofits in Office 365.

Playing with Office 365

Naturally you'll want to get hands-on before you hold your workshop. To start I have issued each of you an Office 365 administrator account using my domain


I also encourage you to apply for a free 30 day trial of Office 365. No credit card is required. Apply here and get the E3 license.

Posting Your Event to Meetup

I've created a draft event description and survey to help you manage your workshop recruitment. But feel free to edit.


To help with your event expenses there is a $250 honorarium for each city that holds a workshop. Honoriums will be transferred in US$ via Moneygram or Paypal.

Please schedule me ASAP. You can schedule me at

I prefer to distribute the funds after the workshop has been completed, but if you need the funds to help cover event expenses ahead of time let me know.
