With only 120 spots at the conference, and an ELGL membership of more than 450 people in 18 states, you can imagine that there are many of our members who are disappointed they can’t attend the conference.
So, we are beefing up our social media presence (even more than usual!) for the conference so ELGL members can follow along on Twitter and Facebook during each conference session.
We are looking for at least 10 people who want to join the ELGL Twitter Team for the conference.
What does this mean?
You’ll get priority front row seating (for high quality picture taking) during the session you’ll help us with; and to thank you for your work, you’ll get an extra drink ticket during social hour.
What do I have to do?
It’s pretty simple – you’ll provide “live tweets” during the session, including your takeaways on important information and notable quotes. You’ll use your own Twitter feed; and will reference some defined hashtags so people can follow along from afar.
Why should I do this?
This is a great opportunity if you want to grow your Twitter knowledge; launch your own Twitter account; or just have a front-and-center seat during part of the conference.
Twitter scares me. Why should I use it?

You don’t need to be an experienced Tweeter to sign up for the #ELGL13 Twitter Team. Just email [email protected] and we’ll get you set up for a fun chance to learn how to use this effective communications tool during the conference!
The conference committee’s goal for #ELGL13 is to create a conference experience that will allow you to learn a lot; meet some new local government peers; and have a great time. We look forward to sharing this experience with you!
