The Fairmont Chateau Laurier
Special Workshop - Sunday, December 4, 2011
We are pleased to announce that we are hosting our first ever Social Media for Emergency Management: A Hands On Tutorial in partnership with the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Center for Social Media (http://www.iacpsocialmedia.org/).
Participants in this workshop are expected to bring their own computers and/or hand held devices (with wireless access) as our expert #SMEM (Hash Tag for Social Media for Emergency Management) facilitators will be helping you get started with creating your own social media accounts. The three hour session will commence with a high level overview from a number of North America's leading SM practitioners. We will then break into smaller groups (SM 101, SM 201, etc.) to provide personal, hands on, tutorials.
The session will then close with a Round Table discussion on #SMEM, current state, future state and gaps between the two with a view to potential future research.
NOTE: This session is only open to delegates who have ALREADY registered for the full Fifth Canadian Public Safety Interoperability Workshop. We are only accepting the first 50 registrations in order to make this event as interactive and personal as possible. There will be NO registrations at the door.
