WOOT! NAGW Conference registration is open and now I can share all the great things we have planned for September 24-27 in Louisville KY. I have attended every NAGW conference and I have to say that I am beyond excited about this year’s event. Consider this line-up:
Tom Duffy from the Center for Internet Security’s Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) headlines Thursday morning, with a discussion of the ever important issue of security.
Molly Holzschlag will be joining NAGW for the fourth year in a row, giving presentations on ARIA (Accessibility for Rich Internet Applications) and SVG vs HTML5 Canvas. Internationally known speaker,
Derek Featherstone, an authority on accessibility and web design, will discuss “Thinking Beyond the Device” and “Responsive Design and Accessibility”.
Wendy Brawer, founding developer of Green Maps, is a social innovator focused on sustainable community development. In a four-hour preconference training workshop, Wendy will detail the GreenMaps.org award winning social mapping platform.
Learn from the pros in our preconference training workshops: jQuery, Content Strategy, Digital Marketing, Handson Reponsive Design, Nontraditional Technology Applications.
NEW in 2013
Friday Focus. A full day dedicated to one topic, this year’s Friday Focus is on Emergency Online Communications. We’re bringing together specialists including Jim Garrow from the City of Philadelphia Dept of Health; Suzanne Frew of The Frew Group, Jeff Paul, Director of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management; Rebecca and Genevieve Williams of Joplin MO, citizens who created JoplinTornadoInfo on Facebook and more. The day’s syllabus is on NAGW.org
NAGW Spark Sessions for the quick learners: ten presentations, five minutes each.
Attend the full conference, preconference, or just the Friday Focus. It’s up to you, but the place to be in September will be the NAGW National Conference in Louisville KY.
If you have any questions about the conference, or Louisville, or NAGW, just ask. GovLoop ranked NAGW’s conference in its top 25 list. Join us in Louisville and you’ll see why!
