You can expect an interactive learning experience with collaborative conversations that help us move to shipping products and solutions. Click to register now.

Rules and Principles for Save Our Ship

We encourage all members to participate, and while in the space we ask that everyone walk in the principles and rules below. Moderators are not always available, so if you encounter any issue or you need help, please contact us immediately.

Guiding Principles

  • The “Law of Mobility” — if at any time you find yourself in a situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, use your virtual feet, and continue to explore the space.
  • Whoever joins are the right people; Whatever happens, is the only thing that could have; Whenever it starts is the right time; When it’s over, it’s over; and Wherever it happens is the right place
  • Increase connection by being unmuted with your video on (headsets encouraged).
  • Help amplify learning and embrace fun!

Rules of the Gathering

Not following these rules may get you banned from future events.
