Would the readers of the Tame the Web be interested in learning about the conference blog http://126.96.36.199/ConferenceCall2007/ for the Joint Chapter MLA Meeting in Omaha?
This morning I posted an “interview” with MLA President Mark Funk. Previous posts (there are 33) include everything from conference program notes to travel tips to foodie updates. I’ll be taking my laptop and camera with me to Omaha and will be posting “live” from the conference. We will also have a number of conference blog correspondents who will be reporting on the conference proceedings. We’ll also be setting up a conference photo gallery and folks will be posting photos to Flickr.
Mark Funk’s presidential priorities include a commitment to increasing use of social media in association business. We’ve been doing this for a while in the Midwest Chapter!
Thanks for the note Clare! Folks interested in conference blogging click through and take a look at a great example. What an easy way to provide ongoing content and generate online interest before, during and after a conference.
