Slack is a team collaboration app that runs on your phone, tablet or desktop.
We use it to manage our projects and the way we work together.
If you have never used this sort of app before you may find it a bit daunting but we encourage you to give it a go.
Not using it doesn’t bar you from getting involved – you can always use email – but you might miss out on some of the conversations between meetings.
If you are a member and would like to join our Slack Workspace email firstname.lastname@example.org
