CTCNet's 15th Annual Community Technology Conference
CTCNetâ€™s 2006 anniversary conference will highlight 15 years of CTCs and community technology: the history, the changes and innovations in the field. An expected 500 leaders will gather together bringing resources and experience to share.
The CTC Network is rooted in community-based efforts, deepened by regional collaborations, and further strengthened by the national exchange of best and effective practices for CTCs. For more than 15 years, CTCs have used technology to engage citizens by offering technology access, training, and support in underserved communities to meet a range of socio-economic challenges.
Our goal at the 15th anniversary CTCNet conference is to demonstrate the reach, capacity, and impact of CTCs across the United States, as well as highlight our relationships across domestic borders. Whether you have been part of the community technology movement from early on â€“ or you came on in recent years, join this incredible group of people to reflect, share, and celebrate our history -- and the future to come. Highlights of conference events include:
An educational program of 40 breakout sessions and half-day workshops
Special events including the CTC Advocacy Day and a 15th Anniversary Reception
An Exhibit Hall featuring an array of tools, resources and services for CTCs
Networking and resource sharing activities, including CTC site visits
Feature panel discussions on current topics; and
The Annual CTCNet Membership Meeting.
