USA Southeast Regional Group Event

The Center for Advanced Communications Policy will host an Information Technology event on August 18th and 19th, 2010, to kick off the BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT, USA Southeast Regional Group inauguration. IT professionals from all sectors will take part in stimulating discussions about social media, its impact in today's socially fueled networked environment and what’s hot in the IT profession. Join us on the Georgia Institute of Technology campus for IT discussion at its best.

Wednesday, August 18th, 10:00am until 4:00pm: CACP and BCS staffers will be at the Kessler Campanile adjacent to the Student Center.  Whether it's BCS' on-line library, electronic newsletters, access to databases or social networking outlets, it is all yours… It's the network within the network. Refreshments will be served.

Thursday, August 19th , 11:30am - 12:30pm Centergy Bldg., Rm. 5126: Ian Ryder will lead a stimulating interchange with the audience on "Your Brand - Hostage to IT!" - how both social media and customer management systems conspire to impact the way organisations succeed or fail; the way students view the IT profession and the way we as consumers view both. Dr. Ron Hutchins will talk about the Georgia Tech Research Network Operations Center (GT-RNOC) efforts on open source apps, how does it fit into expanding branding. Refreshments will be served.

Thursday, August 19th, 3:30pm - 4:30pm Crescent Rm, Student Center: Clinton Jones, Young Professionals Group (YPG) BCS USA Section representative will meet with students and young professionals on the "Student/Professional Continuum" - blurring the distinction and how to make the transition.
