The Corporation for National and Community Service has a call out for bids for national training assistance. Category Two seeks to meet the "goal of providing high quality training and other events through innovative and cost effective means" with $3.5 million available for a number of providers. We think we might have an idea that could attract a modest portion of those funds.
With your help, E-Democracy.Org is exploring a proposal for an special one-week "Social Media and Public Life E-Conference" followed by regional in-person community service "unconferences" (also known as barcamps in the tech world) and the conversion of e-conference content into a world-class collection of on-demand webinars.
With this survey you can "register" your interest to attend, partner with the proposal/offer in-kind support, propose e-workshop topics and presenters (including yourself on a potential sub-contract), etc..
If you need more information before answering the survey, please visit our wiki-based information page. Links to provide further comment and get involved are available there as well.
ALL questions are optional.
