Registration OPEN for Fall 2012 Church IT Roundtables!

Unlike our National Spring events where everyone meets in one location, in the fall we do regional events at multiple locations across the country to keep travel costs low as possible. Regional event registration is just $35.00!

Where are the regionals this year? See below or check out this map of regional locations http://goo.gl/maps/u1azY

What to expect? This is hard to answer, but each year more and more people attend these events! This video clip is 2 years old, but Mark did a nice job explaining why he feels these are must attend events for anyone in Church IT https://vimeo.com/18744075

Who should attend?
Anyone responsible for Information Technology in a ministry setting–Business Admins, IT Directors, Network Admins, Helpdesk, staff or volunteers–regardless of church/organization size

A roundtable is a peer-learning event where the participants are both teachers and learners. A roundtable is:

  • Led by a facilitator and peer
  • Includes participants who have an affinity for each other
  • Does not include a strong agenda beyond sharing knowledge

Purpose
To meet other IT staff and volunteers

  • Encouragement – “I am not alone.” “Here I am understood.”
  • Confidence – “I’m not so crazy after all.”
  • Relationship – Develop on-going friendships

To advance the diffusion of innovation in a given topic

  • Sharing knowledge, lessons learned, and experiences
  • Sorting out the big picture.  How does it all fit?  Where are we going?
  • Synergy of new ideas, new perspectives, and new dreams

To facilitate collaboration

  • Explore opportunities for teaming up to accomplish common goals
  • “Network” – Learn who knows what and who is doing what
