Relive the #ELGL13 Conference

Posted on October 14, 2013

In order for ELGL members who weren’t at the conference to get a glimpse of what they missed and so attendees can go back and relive the glory whenever they want, we have accumulated all of the power point presentations from #ELGL13.  Now not every speaker had a power point presentation (notably the Mayors, the Governors, and the other panels), but every speaker answered some personal questions that were assembled into a presentation all about them.  Those are attached below along with power points from speakers who used one.
