Confer, Convene

August 20th, 2007 by Editor B

I will be speaking at Rising Tide II conference this Saturday. I’m on a panel called “Making Civic Sexy,” which is a great title I wish I’d come up with myself. I’ve suggested that the panelists wear lingerie, but I don’t think that’s actually going to happen.

Of course there will be a cluster of events around the second anniversary of Katrina’s landfall on the Gulf Coast. For example, the People’s Hurricane Relief Fund is sponsoring an International Tribunal on Hurricanes Katrina & Rita. And there are many others.

Further on down the road, the Green Party of Louisiana is having its first convention since Katrina on September 8. And in November, the New Media Consortium is having its 2007 regional conference at Tulane in November. I might be speaking at one or both of these events — not sure yet — but I’ll definitely be in attendance.

    I got to say Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock & Matthew McConahay make civic sexy so I guess using Star power could/does work. And don’t forget “Going Green is the new black”. And since money & sucess is ALWAYS sexy, talk about how saving communities money makes them cooler/sexier. Hey, in this day & age maybe a Paris Hilton spot for planned parenthood might be a big [& ironic] hit. Who knows.
