On Sunday, October 16th, EVO moderators were invited to join us for a chat in Bb Collaborate streamed to YouTube/Live to kick-off the training.

Mbarek Akaddar led a discussion on an overview of the training session, and explained why we feel the moderator training is essential for experienced moderators and new moderators alike. All were encouraged to attend and share their ideas and questions.
