I received an e-mail from Chris Schultz in New Orleans who is helping to organize TribeCon, a 3 day event about building strong communities and leveraging online tools to create powerful movements. He offered to give us deep discounts on tickets, and help us out in any way possible to get us over there. I'm sending this e-mail to gauge your response as a group.
My personal opinion that it's a worthwhile event that could help us as a community to grow stronger and more educated on how to drive Lafayette forward in the digital economy. There will be speakers from all over the United States who have success stories on how they built their communities to be as successful as they are.
All the details can be found at their website: http://www.tribecon.com
it is during the work week so I understand a lot of you will have difficulty getting days off, but they have prepared 7 things to tell your boss about TribeCon to convince them to let you attend: http://bit.ly/x3fmW
It will be on October 29th from 8 am to 7 pm
Let me know if you interested by responding to this e-mail.
