May 16, 2012
Yours truly, along with an impressive lineup of Orange County, California professionals (and at least one honorary Orange County resident) who rock at social business and social good programs, will be paneling at this Friday's (May 18, 2012) Orange County Social Media Summit. If you're in the area and are available to attend this Friday, May 18 (9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PT), then you may still be able to nab your (free) tickets to the OCSMS here.
The venue will be on the spectacular Saddleback Church campus in Lake Forest, California; specifically, at The Refinery building on the Saddleback campus.
The venue is capped at 600 seats… but, just last week, the event coordinators, and my friends, Rochelle Coles (@RochelleVeturis) and her sis Haley Veturis (@HaleyVeturis), informed me that last week saw us already with over 572 verified registrants. So… you do the trend analysis. (Hint: If you're in the area and haven't gotten your ticket(s) yet, then you'll want to hit that link above -- NOW.)
"What If I Can't Attend, Or I Want to Attend the OCSMS Event But Don't Live In California?
I'm so sorry. I'm so very sorry. (Just kidding.)
In case you won't be able to attend live, or you're one of my readers who live out of state, then you'll be happy to know that the Saddleback Church Communications team has kindly offered to arrange this Orange County Social Media Summit (#OCSMS) livestreaming website for you on the day of the event.
While it won't be anywhere near the experience of being live onsite and networking with a lot of cool and well-connected professionals -- while giving ME the honor of meeting you and shaking your hand personally, to boot! -- the livestream is, well, better than nothing, eh?
Will There Be a Back Channel?
Seriously? You don't actually believe that a bunch of social medians would get together for a multi-hundred-seat conference and not have a back channel, do you?
Use -- or tune in -- to the Twitter hashtag above on Friday.
