Thank you for your interest in facilitating a Webinar or Conversation Cafe for the WTR Network community!

Please read through this page completely before you submit your proposal to ensure you understand how this program works and are prepared to fill out all of the sections of the proposal. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

 

General Program Guidelines:

  • Applicants must be registered as Facilitator Members on the WTR Network website.
  • Webinars and Conversation Cafes will be no longer than two hours. If you have additional content to cover, we suggest you submit a proposal for multiple webinars.
  • All Webinars and Cafes will be offered on the gift economy by voluntary donation with no one turned away for lack of funds. A suggested donation range will be established by the Network.
  • The Network reserves the right to cancel an upcoming event within 5 days prior to the event, if the registration is not covering the base cost of promotion and delivery.
  • Once a proposal is approved the facilitator(s) of the event will sign a written agreement with the Network outlining the above guidelines and submit a completed W9 (in US) or W8 (outside US) tax form before promotions for the event can begin.

 

The Network will provide the following support:

  • Planning meeting with facilitator to go over logistics (20-30 min).
  • High profile promotion on our website, newsletter and social media groups (over 15,000 followers).
  • Professional promotional flyer that can be shared via email and social media platforms.
  • Registration process that includes sign up, collection of donations, confirmation emails and reminder emails (facilitator must supply content for these emails and specific questions they want included in the registration form).
  • Zoom platform for up to 500 participants.
  • Tech support. One of our staff members will be present on your webinar or cafe to support your tech needs. We will arrive 20 minutes prior to the start of the Webinar. We will manage participants, create breakout rooms and record your event.
  • Recording of Webinar. We will record and post your Webinar on our website and Vimeo channel.

 

Revenue Sharing

  • Our revenue sharing plan has been crafted with the vision of creating a regenerative flow of resources that supports the continued work of the WTR Network and provides ample compensation for facilitators that is in direct proportion to the amount of revenue generated by each event.
  • All Webinar and Conversation Cafe Program events are offered to the public by free-choice donation within the Gift Economy. A suggested donation amount is presented for each event, but participants are free to register without making a donation, or they can choose to make a donation of any amount during the registration process.
  • Facilitators will receive a guaranteed base amount of either $75 USD or $100 USD (depending on how many facilitators there are for the event) in addition to 50% of the proceeds (revenue after costs). If there is more than one facilitator, the 50% will be distributed equally among them. Payments will be sent to facilitator(s) within one week after the webinar occurs, to allow for processing and accounting time. See the complete Revenue Sharing Policy and examples of how it works out here.

Before you submit your proposal, please make sure you have the following:

  • Potential dates and times (we suggest times that are inclusive to a variety of geographical locations). Please plan ahead by at least 6-8 weeks to allow for time to review applications, create a schedule of events and properly promote your event.
  • Name and brief summary of your event, including how your topic relates to the WTR, and what value it adds for the WTR community.
  • Whether you are facilitating solo or with someone else, please include the names and bios of all planned facilitators or guest speakers, as well as a headshot of each.
  • Intended audience (is this event for beginners, general public, WTR facilitators only, a particular language or region, etc.?).

 

Proposals will be reviewed by the Webinar Program committee at their monthly meeting (usually on the fourth Monday of the month). Once your proposal is reviewed we will reach out to you by email to make a plan for scheduling and promoting your offering.
