Social media and other online tools have become a vital part of the public engagement practice; practitioners are eager to discuss how to use new media while honouring long-held values about engagement.

Our speakers will be:

Sharon Matthias, moderator, Alberta Land-Use Knowledge Network, who will discuss how to create diverse, online communities that engage in conversations that are complex, controversial and full of opportunity.

Susanna Haas Lyons, who has worked on some of North America’s more complex citizen engagement projects, including electoral reform in British Columbia and rebuilding New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Susanna will discuss principles and examples of effective social media for public engagement.

Keith Reeves, station manager, City of Austin (TX) Channel 6. In his work running the city's government TV channel, Keith has incorporated TV and video technology for engagement. In moving from primarily covering council and committee proceedings to providing diverse programming, Channel 6 has won countless state and national awards and nominations. In 2011, Keith received the Brian Wilson Memorial Award for his contribution to government TV in his community from the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NAOTA).
