Marjoleine spoke to Anneke Theunissen (Coordinator learning).   Explained our approach until launch + looked into how to cooperate.   CLAC works with 3 online tools = 1) clacbook which gives basic   information on CLAC members and part of the data is public 2) Progreso   Network for Latin America incl management of Dgroups 3) Cla@se is site   with training tools that is mostly directed at members, but external   people can after authorization download using Paypal. Anneke does see   possiblities to cooperate but this needs a formal decision by the CLAC   board. We agreed that we make an official letter and presentation for   the board and mail it via Anneke and Xiomara. They will introduce it to   the board. In the meantime we keep them informed on developments

during Feb/March several conversations were held with CLAC staff and board members. they are not sure yet how to join the platform and are uncertain about sharing training material that was created with support of others like Root Capital, Earth University and CLAC members.

final conversation lead to an agreement to make a more practical presentation of SxC to two staff members after Easter to look for solutions, maybe create a strong profile of CLAC in the yellow pages and present snapshots of the learningmaterial, e-learning possibilities etc (before launching SxC) and get board members to visit the site when it is public to promote/stimulate further cooperation.

confirmed within SxC implementation team and skype session planned for April 23, 2014
