Class List: If you want to be on the class email list to share your material with the other writers in your group, please let Alex know at firstname.lastname@example.org! Sharing & reading the pages to be discussed helps ensure that everyone is on the same page so everybody can learn from the notes the instructor gives to each writer.
Joining Sessions: Live sessions will be conducted via video conferencing software ZOOM. If you have never used ZOOM before: when you click the link, the ZOOM software will automatically download. Once the download is complete, you will be joined into the meeting. All classes will be recorded & distributed so that you may refer back to them at a later date.
Code of Conduct: Roadmap Writers programs are for training purposes only. These execs are working with us independently from their respective companies. Developing material with an executive does not mean you are developing material for their company. Please do not ask the execs to read your material or for business/personal contact info. Keep all conversations focused on feedback. Any writer making an executive feel uncomfortable or pressured to request material will result in instant termination from the program and prevent the writer from working with Roadmap again. Unless otherwise instructed, do not contact the executive by phone or email outside the scope of the program.
