Hello everyone, I had a question about the MCC and it's scheduling.

Considering we have our chapter meeting each month, one person will usually make a MCC call at the chapter to show how easy and simple it is. This has lead me to wonder if there's any good reason we can't set everyone's MCC day to call ...

Hi folks! We have a new op-ed from Mark Reynolds available for you to personalize and submit to your local newspaper. The op-ed focuses on the emergency COVID-19 relief plans that will put cash in people’s pockets. It then goes on to suggest that we use the same “cash payment” or “dividend” idea ...

The DFW Chapter of CCL has been trying to find ways to show love to the businesses they worked with back when meeting in person and I wanted to give them a shout-out and share what they're doing! They highlighted the pizza place where they have happy hours and the bookstore that hosts their Climate ...

I've been fielding questions about volunteers concerned about wanting to make sure that they are set up in their meetings to prevent a phenomenon known as  " ZoomBombing " or " Zoom Trolling ."

Bill Gates discusses COVID-19 on a TED 

This was excellent. On a recently taped TED Talks Forum Discussion, Bill Gates discusses Covid-19. Research, current knowledge, projection for the future and most importantly HOPE. It’s worth an hour.  Gates mentions near the end that this crisis is ...

Tonight, CCL Communications Director Flannery Winchester will lead a training to ...

I wanted to see how a zoom meeting works on a phone.  I opened a meeting on my computer with my Zoom account, then sent an invitation (via email) to my wife via email.  When she clicked on the link in the email, using her phone, she got the message "Safari cannot open the page because the address is ...

Hey Dan, 
That's frustrating. Let's see what we can do to help. Can you send the invitation to me at ...

Forum help

Select a question below

Community's Sitewide Forum lets you ask questions, share best practices and collaborate with other CCL volunteers and staff. This allows volunteers to move extended conversations from email and Google Groups into a more engaging and secure environment.  

Forums empower community members to discuss topics with one another while ensuring those conversations are archived for later reference. Topics are posted into a forum. Each topic is comprised of an initial post and replies or comments. Categories and forum topics have their own page. Forum categories will be listed on the the landing page.

Forum discussions are open to the entire CCL community to create, comment and read online discussions relating to the community. Categories can only be created by community administrators.
Guidelines for posting: (also see general Community Guidelines)

  • Don’t see your question or topic? Post it.
  • Be thoughtful, considerate (nonpartisan) and complete. The more information you supply the better the better and more engaging the conversation.
  • Feel like cursing? Please don’t it.
  • Ask yourself, “Would my topic post reveal sensitive or confidential information?” If not, post away!

Flag/report any offending comments, and then move on. In the rare instance of a comment containing a potentially credible threat, escalate that immediately to CCL.
