When it isn’t “conference season”, it’s “session submission season”! Voting is now open to select sessions for the next SXSW Interactive conference, taking place in Austin in March. You can vote on all the sessions you find interesting, but I hope you’ll pay particular interest to the 160+ submitted to the “Great Good/Nonprofit” track! I think that more visibility of nonprofits, campaigns, and social benefit work we support at events like SXSWi, the better – there are incredible stories, examples, and leaders in the nonprofit technology space that deserve as much stage time as those in the for-profit world. Please join me in selecting the panels for the 2012 conference, just follow these steps:
1. Sign Up / Sign In
“First, create a PanelPicker account. If you have set up a PanelPicker account in previous years, feel free to go ahead and sign in. After you have signed up for an account, you will receive a verification email. Click on the link inside this email and you will be ready to go. Also, please be assured that we will NOT use your account data for mailing lists and we will not give this data to any third party vendors.”
2. Browse Sessions
3. Thumbs Up + Comments
Voting is with a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” on the proposals. You can pick a up or down vote from the browsing view or from a specific proposal’s page. Every vote helps, but so do comments! If you are interested, have a question, or want to add something, please leave a comment.
And, if you’d be so kind, you can even vote for the session proposal I submitted along with colleagues Debra Askanase, Manny Hernandez, Jess Main, and Vanessa Rhinesmith, Social Media Boundaries: Personal/Personnel Policy. Would appreciate your votes and comments!
