INETA is hosting a free Community Leadership Summit Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday May 15th at 1:00 PM prior to the start of TechÂ·Ed 2011. The summit is open to Community Leaders from the area, as well as those attending TechÂ·Ed from across the country and around the world. It is an excellent opportunity for exchanging information and ideas.
If you are a user group leader, or are involved in the leadership, planning, promotion, or day-to-day operations of a user group community, this event is for YOU! The summit is an open forum to share ideas, discuss common challenges, and gain from the experience of other leaders. INETA Community Leadership summits are part of an ongoing effort by INETA to create, improve and share resources designed to strengthen individual user groups and the community. This meeting will be the perfect opportunity to meet leaders from other groups, benefit from their success stories, and expand your network of contacts.
An offsite reception will follow the Leadership Summit.
