Want to experience Web of Change? We’re sure to have more applicants than we have places, so please submit your application by APRIL 30, 2014 to be considered for this year's event. The Web of Change board carefully selects attendees based on your fit with our goals and culture. We strive for a representation of attendees that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.
Nerd confessional: I love reading about composers. I liken them to fun mad scientists that make awesome art (like a 4-person string quartet played in helicopters) instead of drones. But really, I connect to how they embrace experimentation, risk and collaboration, which are all hallmarks of my experience with Web of Change.
Six months ago we elected our first board of directors. This marked a not-small-at-all leadership transition for us after 12 years from our founders to the community. For accountability -- and to encourage collaboration -- below you'll find our Priorities to January 2015 (when this Board's tenure wraps for the next election.)
Online Tools for Decision Making: What are easy to use tools that enable large groups to collaborate and make decisions together? And why does it matter? In this session, we'll look at how our tools shape our strategy and culture, and take a close look at a new platform just coming out of closed beta, Loomio.org, which grew out of the Occupy movement in New Zealand.
