Announcing Gov 2.0 LA 2011 Free (with registration) pre-event featuring the Los Angeles Consular Corps made up of representatives from foreign governments.
Pre-Event: Friday February 11, 2011. 9am-12pm.
Trainers include Lovisa A. Williams, U.S. State Department, Dillon Hosier, Israel Consulate, Los Angeles, as well as:
Los Angeles International Consulate Corps Social Media bootcamp 101. This Gov20LA pre-event is free and open to the public, but requires registration – which is limited by the number of seats. Gov20LA thanks National Public Radio, KPPC 89.3 FM who will be hosting this at their studios in Pasadena, California. For the first time, the Los Angeles Consulate Corps of Foreign Country missions and consulates will be coming together to receive state of the art basic training in social media from some of the panelists and speakers from Gov20LA. Look for more information shortly about registration for this free part of Gov20LA 2011. We look forward to working with the Consulate Corps of Los Angeles as well as State and Federal agencies for this historic event. This event is co-sponsored by Gov20LA and the Israel Consulate in Los Angeles and sanctioned and supported by the United States Department of State.
Gov20LA has made the international growth of Gov 2.0 one of the 5 major focuses for the 2011 event. We could not be more pleased to feature this training (boot-camp) as the pre-event to Gov 2.0 LA 2011. Not only does it facilitate the type of open dialog and easy to understand methods that Gov20LA has become known for, but it will really highlight the interest amongst the International community for Gov 2.0 and opengov initiatives. It also brings together another focus: the increasingly hyper-local nature of Gov 2.0.
We will be posting the registration information for this pre-event soon – please note it is different from the Gov 2.0 LA 2011 registration found here.
We will be announcing lots more content soon, so keep an eye out.
