Should I call them or chalk it up? If I should call them, what should I say?
Have you reached out to your reference(s) to see if they've contacted them? If they haven't talked to your references then I would used this is as the contact point for reaching out to the office -- Just wanted to see if you were able to reach my references (name the specific reference you feel is your strongest) as I know s/he has been traveling of late for business and I know during our conversation you expressed a desire to fill the position quickly.
You'll either get we haven't started calling references yet but will let you know or we only reached out to the candidate we offered to at this time.
If they HAVE called your references already then your reach out to them can come from the interview -- think back to a question that was raised or concern noted for the person taking on the position. This will be your entry point --- saw this article about (yada yada)/ or found myself thinking about the point you raised during our conversation and I thought it presented and opportunity to use (yada yada) model for workflow....
