CFCA across different time zones

By Shanxi Omoniyi, CFCA online content manager

Time clockDaylight saving time started Sunday, but we adjust the clock all the time as international communicators!

Have you ever thought about how CFCA is a 24/7 community? Because we work in countries around the world, CFCA staff members are usually awake in some place or another.

In the Kansas City office, staff members in our international programs department often start their workday receiving emails sent at all sorts of odd hours: 11 p.m., 3 a.m., etc.

These emails are from our colleagues around the world during their workday while we were asleep!

Of course, this makes coordinating live webinars and Skype sessions interesting. For example, we have monthly online conference calls at 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. to accommodate our projects in Africa, India and the Philippines.
