Exciting times for the gov2qld community as we have just welcomed our 400th member to the group and are actively working with practitioners and advocates in other states around Australia to roll out similar Communities of Practice in other locations. More details soon!
The next gov2qld networking event will be held at the headquarters of Queensland Police (full details below).
This month we will focus our ‘Government 2.0 Intensive Care’ session on a subject that is often overlooked in the excitement of Government 2.0 initiatives, that of Preservation and Record Keeping.
It’s a subject that was very much front of mind during the deliberations of the Government 2.0 taskforce and I’d recommend the report produced for the taskforce by Recordkeeping Innovation as pre-meeting reading.
Once again we will have a panel discussion with Troy Pullen from Queensland State Archives and James Kliemt from QPS. There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions, discuss your own experiences and most importantly relate the subject matter to your own situations.
Of course, we’ll also have our usual networking session, a look at whats in the news from a Government 2.0 perspective and a chance for you to raise burning questions or issues of the group in our ‘Government 2.0 Surgery’.
Please note we will revert to our previous start time of 5.00pm to enable those that need to get home at a sensible time to do so. For the rest, there will likely be a few takers for drinks afterwards (since the venue is an alcohol free zone).
When: Thursday 11th August 2011, 5.00-7.00pm
Where: Queensland Police Headquarters, 200 Roma Street (between Makerston and Garrick Streets). Once inside the main foyer, turn left just before the security gates. See map below.
It’s free and everyone is welcome!
Many thanks to our hosts Queensland Police Service and our wonderful sponsors, Mammoth Media.
… and thank you for your continued participation in our Gov2qld community!
