May flowers: the social media CoP roundup

Some exciting stuff going on right now!

Baroness Hanham from the Department of Communities and Local Government is hosting an online discussion on how councils and the voluntary sector can work more closely together. Has there been enough in the mix about digital collaboration? Runs through the 26th – check it out.

Representatives from DemenShare – are really cool project to use social networking support people with dementia and those caring for people with dementia are going to share lessons in a hot seat tomorrow 26 June. Find out more here – including links to resources beyond just the Q&A.

Interactivisman accessibility hack weekend on 17-18 June. The deadline for submitting ideas is 1 June. Hurry! Your chance to work with Google engineers and other really cool people.

There’s another event coming up in early July with a hack feel. Details forthcoming. But if you liked Local by Social – and you like the idea of working with local and national sets of localgov data – register your interest here and we’ll be in touch soon. And if you can’t access Google forms, then reply to this email and ask to be added to the list.

LocalGovCamp in Birmingham is coming up, too! But that’s sold out. Get on the wait list.

Councillors and social media:

Can you help us refresh the social media guidance for councillors? I’ve come up with a list of things I could really use examples for here. This is a great chance to get some national exposure in an LG Group publication for your council and your councilors. Please let me know what you’re up to and forward the link to any councillors who might like to share their experience with colleagues.

Can you help? Stuff from the forum

Just a smattering of cool stuff from the blogs:
