#ELGL15 Planning Committee members Kylie Bayer-Fertterer and Jahmai Cherry are blogging for ELGL as we lead up to our annual conference on October 23. Today, Kylie shares with us some of the conference ideas that resulted from the #ELGL15 Twitter conversation.
Here are five possible conference topics members have come up via ELGL Twittersations using the hashtag #ELGL15. The theme of #ELGL15 is the Creativity Summit and your planning committee is looking for ideas about sessions or not-sessions, food, decor, pre and post-conference events, and so much more.
We’ll call on experts attending the conference to share their insights about topics you bring to #ELGL15. Unplanned, unfiltered, on the fly!
