Please distribute this 2010 Annual Conference Online Community Invitation to your community so that all who wish to participate in this experience over the next several months might have the opportunity. This year’s community provides a unique opportunity to explore many aspects of communicating through social media and promises to be an informative experience. You are encouraged to explore the space (information provided below) and start with the tools and spaces where you are most comfortable. Then stretch yourself by either passively or actively exploring one or two other tools in the community.
