CrowdSourcing Call for Volunteers – Gov’s First Hybrid Event

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), in partnership with the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), is spearheading the first federally developed hybrid event initiative, (part in-person and part virtual conference) – the Public Health Informatics 2011 Virtual Conference (PHIVC), (see our featured GovLoop article here). The PHIVC offers a way for partners to experience activities and events, simultaneously during the in-person Public Health Informatics (PHI) 2011 conference, being held in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Hyatt Regency – Downtown, August 21-24, (THIS WEEK COMING UP)!

Govies, we need your help! We are trying to crowdsource volunteers to accomplish many important tasks. We will be able to provide a certificate of recognition for your efforts. Here is what we need:

I would love to be a remote volunteer – either as a chat session moderator or a virtual greeter. I am available on Sunday and Monday to help.

If it helps I have experience as a chat session moderator, I was an AOL News Channel Chat Host for around 5 years.
