In my blogging life, there are only a handful of conferences that I deem necessary to attend. And the Latinos in Social Media National Conference is one of them! It’s not a typical blogging conference by any means. In fact, it’s different and I think that’s why I appreciate it so much.
The LATISM conference is targeted towards the Latino who cares about their community and wants to make a change via social media. I was in attendance last year in Chicago and I was impressed, with not only the sessions and tracks, but also the love and support I felt from everyone there. I also made amazing connections with other Latinos!
This year it will be held October 25-27, 2012 in Houston, Texas! And YES bloggers are encouraged to attend!! If you’re like me and you need help…grab one of the “Sponsor Me” badges! If you’ve already made plans to go or wish to go, grab a badge here to represent!
Four tracks will be covered:
Business: Top Latino executives will share marketplace best practices and culturally relevant approaches for supporting small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Technology: This track is about social-change: as Latinos continue to make strides in developing new and cutting edge technologies, it is essential to prepare ourselves with the skill sets, professional development and networking opportunities to become technology leaders in the current global competitive environment.
Health: Information and resource-sharing can undoubtedly make an impact in the health and quality of people’s lives within our community. This track will feature top researchers, health practitioners and organizations who will explore the key health issues faced by our community, the individual and community barriers to health education, the need for advocacy in health policy and the path to equity in health communication.
Education: Our education track will explore the adoption of strategies and channels that embrace the principles of openness and reusability in new and transmedia within the context of educational institutions.
