I'm an Events Associate at the Centre for Effective Altruism. I'm part of the team that produces the EA Global conferences in San Francisco and London each year. I'm also CEA's main point of contact for EAGx organisers, providing them with advice and resources to help them run high-quality events.

In addition to my role at CEA, I also provide communications support to the Happer Lives Institute on a voluntary basis.

I practice secular Buddhism and try to meditate for at least 1 hour every day. Buddhist philosophy drives my commitment to effective altruism and doing the best I can to reduce the suffering of others.

We’re excited to announce that meeting slots have been extended all the way through to next Sunday, March 29 so please continue to make new connections and schedule one-on-one meetings.

We hope you’ve enjoyed participating in the first-ever EA Global virtual conference. We’d really value your feedback to help us plan more virtual events for the EA community over the coming months.

If you're short on time, you can complete this survey in about 5 minutes, but the more detail you can provide in the open text questions, the better.

Thanks for the suggestion! Because of the time zone differences, we've squeezed as much content as possible into a 4 hour window. However, if you're watching live on YouTube you can pause the broadcast at any time, and then catch up again by watching at 1.5x speed.

We'll be sending out a feedback survey after the Sunday broadcast, and we'd be really grateful to hear about people's experiences and suggestions.

I'll post the survey link here when it's live.

Notes on “The Art of Gathering”

Thanks very much for posting this summary David. I've found it very helpful for thinking about ways to improve EA Global in 2019. I read the whole book over the Christmas holidays and compiled my own set of notes which readers may find complementary to your excellent summary:
