Just a Few Days Left to Vote for June 10th Topic

This is just a brief reminder that there are about 7 days left to vote for the topic to be presented at our June 10th event. Voting closes on May 26th at 11pm. (This gives whoever is selected to present/lead the night a two week window for preparation.) Vote for the ideas you are most curious about. Or see more details about the June 10 event.

Remember: you can add new ideas/proposals for discussion at future events at any time.

Community Communications

One of the principal ideas behind the City Symposium vision is that it is peer-led and self-organized. Therefore, instead of leaving it to one individual to oversee the entire range of communications, the value of “horizontal leadership” means that everyone in the network should be able to connect with everyone else. To put this ethos into practice, I have converted citysymposium.com into a collaborative communications ‘hub’.

Along with all relevant group information (such as event schedule and idea voting), everyone is now able to create an account and log in to the site, which in turn enables everyone to write a new post. When a person publishes a blog post on the new site, it is automatically syndicated to the email list within 24-hours. (And new posts are also posted on the City Symposium social media accounts.)

The idea here is simple: everyone has the capacity to connect with everyone else in the network.

Speaking of the network, jump over to the new site and vote for some ideas. Our next meeting is June 10th. There are 14 days left to cast your vote(s) for which idea will be brought forward at the meeting.
