On Tuesday, 22 April 2008 there’s a one-day conference in Hamilton, New Zealand called Engage Your Community:
Using Blogs, YouTube and other Cool Tools to achieve your group’s goals
Do you want to know how your tangata whenua, community or voluntary group / organisation can connect with volunteers, staff, and other stakeholders more easily, immediately and efficiently?
Do you want to learn to use the internet for fundraising, collaborating, promotion, advocacy, cost-cutting, service provision, and more?
And do all this with very little technical knowledge and at very little cost (often free)? Then read … www.webguide.net.nz/engage-your-community.
…You can also help shape the conference and make sure it meets your organisation’s needs by completing a quick online survey.
By completing the survey right away, you can also go into the draw for two $50 Farmer’s vouchers.
I’m one of the organisers for this mini-conference, and will be one of the speakers too. The conference hooks in to Webguide 2.0, the site I’ve been writing and working on for most of 2007, along with its companion blog, Groupings.
At the moment it’s still a seedling of a site, but we’ll be adding to it and growing it over the next while, or possible for ever (after a summer break, of course).
