Attendee Cohort Facilitator Application

Attendee Cohorts are a trademark feature at Rosenfeld Media conferences (read more about them here). Cohorts are designed to enrich the experience of attending a virtual conference by enhancing small group networking and learning activities. We’re looking for volunteers who are interested in facilitating a cohort for a future Rosenfeld Media event.

What does a Cohort Facilitator do?
Facilitators work in pairs to co-lead a group of 10-15 conference attendees. You’ll help attendees meet each other, establish common learning goals, check-in during the conference, and reconvene at the end to revisit those goals. Meetings take place via Zoom, and each cohort keeps the discussion going during the conference via a private Slack channel.

What’s required for becoming a Cohort Facilitator?
Prospective facilitators are required to attend an hour-long orientation, and to schedule and run their cohort’s meetings and, with their co-facilitator, ensure that their cohort is “staffed” for the duration of the conference. You don’t need to be an experienced remote facilitator—but it is a plus.

Why facilitate a Rosenfeld Attendee Cohort?
In addition to learning and applying valuable facilitation skills, you’ll receive a complimentary ticket to attend the full day of each day of the conference, and your bio and headshot will be featured on the conference website. Also, we’ll bet that you’ll make fantastic industry connections who will remember you for years to come!

Interested? Please apply below. If you qualify, we’ll be in touch!
