Conference

The 140 Characters Conference - Central Sierra will be held from 9

a.m. to 5 p.m. May 24 at Black Oak Elementary School, 18995 Twain Harte Drive, Twain Harte.

The conference explores the effects of social media (Facebook,

individuals, organizations and regions. The goal is to bring together a

diverse group of people to share their perspectives, experiences and

stories about how the real-time Internet is affecting their industry

sectors and the people inside them.

Presentations are limited to 10-20 minutes each, with no PowerPoint

presentations, to permit as many people as possible to share their

stories. Presenters are selected to stimulate discussion across a wide

range of sectors including business, agriculture, government, tourism,

education, entertainment, nonprofit and more.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Amador-Tuolumne Community Action Agency Digital Literacy Program.
