Engage your community conference, Christchurch

Engage Your Community
Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology
16 April 2010
Registration between $40 and $85

Last year I attended and gave a workshop at the Wellington version of this event. It was awesome.

The Christchurch version looks equally interesting and useful (not to mention cheap as chips). The programme is structured as a series of short workshops, bookended with a presentation and a panel discussion. It looks like a good chance to survey a range of free or cheap web-based services that could help you with internal and external comms, from how to save money on long-distance calls by using Skype, to how to make beautiful word images using Wordle, to how to run a fund-raising campaign on Facebook.

In a little shout-out to my peeps, I'd highly recommend the sessions being run by Christchurch City Libraries staff, and Emma McCleary's Facebook workshop.
