Conference calls ​☎
The conference calls (also called "TelKos" from German "Telefonkonferenz" which is the translation of "conference call") are probably the most important CorrelAid communication channel.

Call schedule

Up until 2020, we had a call every week. However, we've found that this is not ideal anymore as we grow and more and more people join the core team. Hence, we've decided on a new call schedule: Calls are generally on Monday at 7pm (Berlin time) until agreed upon otherwise. On the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month, the "regular" Core Team call takes place. On the first and third Monday, we take the time to focus on specific groups in our network: CorrelAid "newbies" and our local chapters.
Because it's hard to remember such things, we have a calendar with all the calls for you to add to your favorite calendar application.
Ps: Before anyone asks: In case there's a 5th Monday in a month, there is no call.

Open / Onboarding Call: 1st Monday

What: Open / onboarding call. This call is open to anyone who is interested in our work. You don't even have to be part of We share important updates from the CorrelAid world, answer questions and provide some onboarding information for CorrelAid "newbies".
When: 1st Monday of each month, 7pm (Berlin time).
Where: The open call is held on Zoom. To register and to get access to the link, click here or take a look at our event calendar.

CorrelAidX / Local Chapter Call: 3rd Monday

When: 3rd Monday of each month, 7pm (Berlin time).

Protocol

Outcomes of the conference calls are usually documented in a CodiMD pad. Please see the #telko channel for the links to the previous protocols.
