“Net Inclusion 2018” in Cleveland April 17-19

The National Digital Inclusion Alliance’s third big national gathering of digital inclusion practitioners, leaders and advocates will happen in mid-April in downtown Cleveland.

Net Inclusion 2018 will take place at the Global Center for Health Innovation and the Cleveland Public Library’s Main Branch, beginning with pre-conference workshops and tours on Tuesday April 17, and continuing through Thursday April 19th.  More than 250 participants are expected from across the country.

The conference agenda includes speakers and breakout presentations on a wide variety of broadband policy issues, community strategy development, digital literacy training and access approaches, fundraising and more.

This is a unique opportunity for Northeast Ohioans to meet and learn from NDIA’s national network of digital inclusion experts, civic leaders and program operators, without the expense of a plane ticket or even a hotel room.

The Cleveland Foundation, the Cleveland and Cuyahoga County Public Libraries, Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority, Digital C, Ashbury Senior Computer Community Center, CEOGC, HackCLE, the Urban Health Initiative and Connect Your Community are among the local groups involved in planning Net Inclusion 2018. We’ll all be there… you should too!
