Monthly Membership Meetings via Zoom

MONTHLY MEETING DATES & TIMES:  Members and Friends across Canada are welcome to attend CANSCAIP membership meetings held on the second Wednesday of each month (no meetings in July or August).  Visitors are welcome too and can request the Zoom link from office@canscaip.org

MEETING TIMES ACROSS CANADA: BC 4:00 | AB 5:00 | MB/SK 6:00 | ON/QB 7:00 | NS/NB/PE 8:00 | NL 8:30

REGISTER FOR THE ZOOM LINK:  Attendance at the monthly meetings is FREE. When you register for a meeting, you'll get the ZOOM LINK in the registration confirmation email.  

SPEAKERS: An expert speaker or a panel of speakers makes a presentation at each meeting. 

MEMBER & FRIEND ANNOUNCEMENTS AT MEETINGS: Have a new book? Nominated for an award? Tour or book launch ahead? News about the book community? Let us know, and we'll put you on the agenda to make your announcement at the meeting.  Since there can be many announcements at a meeting, please keep your announcement to 2 minutes or less (with average talking speed, 2 minutes is 260 words). Send office@canscaip.org the following information about your announcement: 

  • Book title, genre and/or age range, publisher
  • Short synopsis of book, or info on launch, tour,  award, etc. 
  • Put "Meeting Announcement by [Your Name]" in the email subject line

MEETING FORMAT:  The monthly meetings begin with announcements by Members and Friends, followed by the meeting speakers.  The meetings are about two hours long. 

  • During the meeting, attendees can use Chat to type questions and comments for the speakers, which will be read aloud by the meeting coordinator.
  • After the meeting, attendees are encouraged to linger for an additional 15 minutes in breakout rooms where we can talk in smaller groups.
  • Meetings are recorded, and Members and Friends can watch the online videos available via our website.
  • CANSCAIP's meetings offer an inclusive, supportive, and safe space for our cross-Canada community of Members and Friends. Everyone is expected to be respectful in all spoken and posted comments.
