TEAM CAPTAIN CALLS

The purpose of these virtual meetings is to make important announcements and updates about the BDOG2019 campaign, provide additional learning opportunities and give you a chance to ask questions of the BDOG Team. These calls are open to all interested parties at your organization, however it is particularly important for the team captain to take part in them given that they are the leader of their BDOG campaign. If you are unable to join the webinar, a recorded version of the call will be uploaded to the Toolkit for future viewings.
