In my life away from broadband, I gave a presentation earlier this week on social media tools to the Minnesota Communication Technology Association. While I was there I learned about the following conference…
Telework 2010 Conference in October
October 6th – 6-8 p.m.
October 7th – 8 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The Minnesota Telecom Alliance, Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, and the Center for Rural Policy and Development are co-hosting TELEWORK SUMMIT 2010. The Summit will be held at the Radisson Conference Center, 3131 Campus Drive, Plymouth. The networking reception will be held from 6pm to 8pm on October 6. The Summit will run from 8:30 a.m. to Noon on Thursday, October 7. There is NO COST for this event. Our goal is to advance telework and telecommuting in Minnesota. If you are interested in telecommuting this is the event for you, whether your company employs teleworkers, you are looking to promote your community as telework friendly, or just believe telecommuting is crucial to the future of rural economic development this is the event for you.
The event kicks off with a networking reception on Wednesday evening. We all know that the way to get things truly done is by building relationships. What better way to do that than a fun, friendly social environment.
Thursday morning is packed with relevant speakers who will talk about their insights on the topic from the employer’s perspective, teleworker’s perspective, and what DEED has to offer to facilitate telecommuting. The morning will conclude with a panel discussion where you get to ask your questions of the presenters.
