Keynote Address by:

David Gergen
Director, Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership

May 4, 2009
George Washington University, Cafritz Conference Center
800 21st Street, NW, Washington, DC

The Phoenix Project has joined forces with The Corporation for National and Community Service and this impressive list of co-conveners:

* American University
* Community Wealth Ventures
* The George Washington University
* Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation
* Old Dominion University
* Root Cause

… for an important conversation about the role of technology in creating social change and transforming communities.

Some conferences are about networking, some are about thinking…this is about doing!

Individuals of all ages, from all walks of life are turning to their computers, the Internet, their PDAs, anything they can get their hands on to stay connected!

The goal – leverage this connectivity to enable individuals to find opportunities for service and to spur social change. Please join us, on May 4, 2009 at George Washington University as leaders of all facets of the American Social Sector join together for this one-of-kind event. The common element: technology – the role it is already playing in social innovation and where it will take us! In addition to plenary sessions and keynote speakers, conference attendees will choose breakout sessions that best fit their background and further their own professional development. The conference will be held in Washington, DC and simulcast to Hampton Roads, Virginia – using the Old Dominion University TeleTech Network.
