Upcoming CPD: Social Media Social

To our out-of-town readers (and people already registered – thank you!), please forgive this small bit of promotion! There’s a really neat CPD program coming up in Ottawa next month, and we just had to write about it for the blog.

On April 4, the CCLA will be holding the “Social Media Social” – a gathering of some really excellent bloggers and social media pros from the Ottawa legal community (and also me – how did I get on this invite list?!). What started out as local lawyer Sean Bawden (author of the Clawbie Award-winning “Labour Pains” blog) tweeting “Hey, who wants to get drinks and talk about blogging?” has morphed into a half-day session on topics related to blogging, vlogging, and Twitter. You can take a look at the full agenda here. By my count, there are five Clawbie winners speaking that afternoon, so I think it’s safe to say we’ll know a thing or two about legal blogging! The session has been accredited for 1.25 professionalism hours and 1.75 substantive hours, too, so if you’re already getting to work on your 2017 CPD hours, you can snag a few here.

Registration for the session is available online. Brenda and I will both be there, so we look forward to meeting more of our readers in person!
