wanted: college web speakers for suny cuad conference.

In a somewhat questionable move, I was recently appointed the Web track chair for this year’s SUNY CUAD Conference June 10 to 12 in Lake Placid. So I’m looking for interesting, informed, informative higher education professionals who may want to present to fellow college peeps.

Wanted: College-based doers who can discuss Web-related topics, particularly social media. Must have something to say and an ability to say it well. Perhaps have solved some common Web-related higher-ed challenge in a cost-effective way. Audience is college practitioners following such tracks as Web, marketing, PR, publications, alumni relations or development; ability to appeal to more than one track is a bonus.

The conference will take place at the High Peaks Resort in the lovely little Adirondack city of Lake Placid. The resort has a spa, a marvelous view of Mirror Lake … and even a Facebook page, Flickr tour and Twitter account (yay for Web 2.0!).

Conference organizers can cover travel and accommodations for presenters. Alas, we can not pay honoraria to track speakers due to a tight budget. I could be convinced to buy a drink or 10 for speakers if they so desire (those into microbrews may enjoy the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery). And our attending SUNY CUAD peeps tend to be wonderful down-to-earth folks and a lot of fun.

Interested? Feel free to drop me a line. Or even if you just want to suggest a good conference topic in the comment box, go ahead!

    Greetings from Sydney. Can I get travel and accommodation from down under? I have done quite a bit of web work here.

    Seriously, sounds interesting. Good luck with conference.

    COLIN: Having seen you lecture, it would be interesting. I guess you could always just crash one of our outings and then go camping.

    BRIAN: Can I say “G’day, mate” or is that a media fabrication? Anyway, yeah, travel would be a bit of money. But thanks for making contact.
