MET Conversations

MET Conversations is an activity where members get together on Zoom to discuss language- and work-related topics. At the start of each session, participants are divided into random groups of six without assigned leaders, while co-hosts Kit Cree and Anne Murray work on and off scene to make sure everything runs smoothly.

A perfect place for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and networking, MET Conversations last up to an hour, so there’s plenty of time to chat, ask questions and crowdsource the answers. Topic experts and novices are welcome.
