Readathon Meet-Ups

In-Person Meetups (Jacksonville, FL) 

1-2 Hours

Intended as an opportunity for members to set aside time and read the book for the session, as well as a networking opportunity.

These meetings are not standard in a session, they are scheduled on an as-needed basis if we have selected a long book, or a book that has not been recorded as an audiobook. 

Final Discussion Meetings

Final Review of discussion questions and discuss takeaways from the content.

1-2 Hours

1-2 PDUs

Will include relating content back to Project Management, identifying takeaways and discussing ways to implement what we have learned in our professional lives. This meeting is standard for each session, any change to the time or date will be communicated through the BookClubs app after registeration. 

Fireside Chat Events

A PMI-NEFL chapter event hosted by the Double-Booked Book Club. 

1 hour, 1 PDU

A virtual chat with an author of one of the selected books, or a featured speaker for the book club, focusing on the topic of the monthly session. This is an opportunity for book club members to ask questions about the topic and explore the topic further. 

These meetings are not standard and are held when possible and when deemed valuable to the chapter and book club members. 

When and Where Does Double-Booked Meet? 

We meet 1-3 times over a 5 week session. Progress Check-Ins and Final Discussions will be held virtually, other meetings (see descriptions above) may be virtual, hybrid or in-person events. In-person event location information will be given in the event description at the time of registration.
