    How to Register for the EduGeek Chorley Conf 2010

    OK, Now I'm almost back up to speed after clearing a backlog of admin I have created an email address for you to register for the conf on.
    Please email me the following to conf.2010@edugeek.net:

    Real name

    EduGeek name

    Address (we won't spam you or sell your details on)

    Please note that if you work for a private company you must pay to attend. The cost is £35, and you must notify me up to 7 working days before if you wish to drop out, if not you will receive a bill. Sorry, but as we pay for all of the places we were left out of pocket by almost £500 a couple of years back by people who decided not to attend at the last minute, and this isn't fair on thoese who wanted to attend but had the spaces taken up.
    The conf is on the 2nd June 2010 and will start at 09:30 at the Woodlands Centre in Chorley:

    Woodlands Conferencing

    If you wish to stay on either the Tuesday or Wednesday night, we shall be there to entertain you both evenings, but the main social meal is on the Wednesday evening at Prego! (formerly Le Frog) where we ate last year (Prego). if you are overnighting on the Tuesday evening we shall be laying on a coach (as per usual) to take you from the hotel, to the conf, and back again afterwards.
    The hotel we recommend is the Ibis Preston North (Hotel PRESTON Ibis Preston North: hotel reservation in PRESTON), as it's cheap, accessable and has a pub next door
    I've now attached the (beta) flyer for the conf, for those of you who need something tangable to give your bosses to justify your attending.

    I still don't know what the timetable is, who is speaking or what the arrangements are despite saying this several times. Please, post it somewhere so I have a case to present to my boss?

    Hi Dos Box

    I registered a week or so ago, do we get e-mailed confirmation that we are on the list - as I never received anything if so. I think when you used the Event Elephant thing last year we got a reply.

    Cheers

    Andrew

    Dos_box... Hows about doing something easy and grand and answering peoples questions, I know its hard with your commitments and all, but seriously. I've seen sparkeh, powdarmonkey, azrael all ask for an agenda, who's going to be there, what times everything is happening and the likes and no response yet?

    How do you expect people to register and take time out of their life's to attend a conference where all they know is; there will be more geeks there, and that's all we're telling you. Some people actually need to justify time-off to their bosses

    You know, I wouldn't mind even just "It's still being finalised but could be $speakers, I will confirm it in $days", but Dos_Box, you've persistently ignored such requests lately and it's hacking me off. Mind you, a month-old unrelated thread in 'Message the Admins' hasn't yet the courtesy of a response either, so maybe it's really me that's being ignored?

    Anyway, it does not make me a) impressed b) happy c) want to come to the conference (and I would like to really, but I can't justify a working day being spent on a jolly to something that might be pointless).

    Ok, my grumble is over

    On that note we recently made some changes in attempt to try and make sure we do not miss posts in the future like we have in the past.

    What about making some changes in mindset and actually replying to users forum posts when they're directed at admins.

    Sorry I've not been around of late... we do get a lot of messages and unfortunately the systems fail and we have missed things... the new site launch didn't help. All we can do is apologise.

    The general theme of the conference will be to inform you of upcoming matters that will effect UK education.

    The flyer posted above shows some of the proposed speakers. I can also confirm that Capita will be speaking on the future of your school MIS.

    All presentations will be as agnostic as possible... this is a stipu;ation we make because we realise that you don't want to be preached to. obviously an element of 'we will be doing X' will sneak in but that's the price you pay for attending a 'free' conference.

    As in the past, the best parts of the day will be meeting other members... I can't rate the evenings highly enough! Those that have attended previous conferences will testify to how useful the day can be.

    We will also try to make the day available online too so that those that can't attend can join in.

    Once again, sorry if we have ignored questions... sometimes we just don't know the answers and we should do better.

  21. Thanks to Ric_ from:
