ITEA has a number of events planned to make social networking a part of the 72nd Annual Conference in Charlotte.
To kick off the conference, stop by the Social Networking Table at the Welcome Reception/Networking Event scheduled for Wednesday, March 17, from 5:00-6:00pm in the Hilton Hotel's Charlotte Hall. Find out about all the social networking opportunities that ITEA has to offer both at Conference and during the rest of the year and ask any questions you may have.
Facebook: ITEA has established an "Event" on Facebook – a place to find out who else is coming, share information, and find out the latest news about the Conference. Once you're a Facebook user, go to: http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=274351457934. Also remember to "friend" ITEA STEM on Facebook.
Flickr: We see all those cameras at conference and have created a Flickr group to allow you to share those photos with your fellow attendees. You'll need a Yahoo account to access Flickr. Once there, look for the group "ITEA2010" or use the following link: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1319625@N25/.
Twitter: Twitter is a two-way street and we hope you'll consider both sending and receiving Tweets in Charlotte. If you do Tweet about the conference, be sure to use the hashtag #itea10. Need a "hashtag tutorial"? Go to http://tinyurl.com/bw85z2.
To "follow" ITEA in Charlotte, once you've signed up for Twitter, go to: http://twitter.com/iteastem. In addition to late-breaking news and announcements regarding the conference, you will also become eligible to win prizes ONLY for Twitter followers, including gift cards for Charlotte restaurants, Mission Green promotional items, and a big hint to help you find the Biltmore Raffle Bag!
Social Networking adds an extra dimension to your overall conference experience—allowing you to receive and share news and information in real time. Still have questions? Be sure to stop by the Social Networking Table on Wednesday night in Charlotte or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
