Weekly Letter to Our Global Community – 22 Nov 22

EDRM Letter to our Global Community 22 Nov 22

Dear EDRM community,

The word of the week is gratitude.

We wish you a wonderful holiday, however you may celebrate, as we move into next week.  EDRM will be closed from today through next Monday, except for our 139th Zoom based support call.

Kaylee Walstad and Mary Mack on behalf of EDRM

Kaylee and I are so very grateful to our EDRM community for so many things.

  • Our EDRM Project Trustees and Project Contributors, led by Dave Cohen, have collaborated on behalf of our greater community throughout and after the pandemic.
  • Our EDRM Global Advisory Council, led by Robert Keeling, provided valuable insights and input to us and to our Project Teams to develop community consensus and work both sides of the v.
  • Our EDRM Community Support call, anchored by Craig Ball, Tom Gelbmann, Darius Bennett, Sheila Grela, Doug Austin and another dozen stalwarts, and all those who have come to ask for or to offer support.
  • Our EDRM faculty who have contributed their expertise on webinars to better inform our practice.
  • Our EDRM blog authors who allow us to publish and share their insights that help to educate and inspire us all.
  • Our EDRM Trusted Partner Network, who support us in bringing the EDRM content, framework, projects and community together in a sustainable way and keeps our lights on.
  • Our EDRM social media supporters, press and group members who inform, entertain and connect us.
  • We are grateful for our opportunities to meet and learn as we will next week on E-Discovery Day, to include substantive webinars like the 411 on Special Masters, the Gayle O’Connor GO Spirit Award ceremony for Sheila Grela and the 2022 Top Cases on eDiscovery and a David Greetham led Kahoots session leading into local events.
  • And last, but not least, we are grateful to our families of origin and our chosen families, who, like yours, come up under us to allow us to do this work, and be part of our global, multidisciplinary, deadline driven community.

We wish you a wonderful holiday, however you may celebrate, as we move into next week.  EDRM will be closed from today through next Monday, except for our 139th Zoom based support call on Tuesday at 6PM Eastern. Email us at info@edrm.net to be included on the group invitation. 

Remember, you are not alone, and you are welcome at our events, or to reach out for help.  If you are having a mental health emergency, please consider these resources for professional help.  Tall Poppy has some resources specifically for those experiencing online harassment, with some great sources of general mental health resources.

We welcome your participation in our projects, webinars, support gatherings, and our EDRM Hub, our job board/event/directory website.  There is no charge for these EDRM offerings, thanks to our very generous partners. 

We love you,

Mary & Kaylee
