Call for Sessions – Closed

We have received so many submissions for sessions, we decided to extend the submission deadline to allow more time for our Board & Track Leaders to review them properly. The new, extended deadline for submissions will be Monday, August 8th, 2011. All sessions will be carefully reviewed by the LATISM Board of Directors, the LATISM Advisory Board and the Track Leaders. The final LATISM’11 Sessions will be announced in rounds during the month of August.

This Call for Sessions is asking presenters to bring their most ground-breaking ideas, revolutionary approaches and case studies on their use of social media to reach the Latino and/or multicultural community. All sessions will have simultaneous translation in English and Spanish to foster a more inclusive and richer conversation.
