The Conference is Almost Upon Us

Did you know that Facebook has functional hashtags now? Facebook added hashtag support back in June, just in time for our 2013 National Conference. Our conference hashtag, as you may already know, is #NAEH13 – click on that and you’ll see that people are already using it on Twitter. As of right now, we’re the only people to use it on Facebook.

All of us in the Alliance are busily putting the final touches on the conference. Yesterday I completed my last workshop conference call and, right now, the office I share with our director of meetings and events is packed with boxes of badges, workshop packets, office supplies, foam core signs and other assorted conference paraphernalia.

This is the last blog post we will be publishing before the conference begins on Monday, so I just want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that during the conference the Alliance staff will be live-tweeting, and posting stuff on Facebook, and we want you to…too. Don’t forget to use #NAEH13 (on both Facebook and Twitter) to be part of the conversation!

And if you want a chance to win a free Spy City Tour, participate in our Photo Campaign and send us a photo! We will be choosing a winner at random and contacting them by 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 23. The tour is later that day, from 5 to 7 p.m. (More details about how to participate below).

Lastly, don’t forget to upload this PDF file of the 2013 National Conference Program Journal to the tablet, smart phone, or e-book reader of your choice for quick and easy reference during the conference.

See you on Monday! (I’ll be the guy walking around carrying a camera.)
