ASCD Community in Action

Annual Conference Tweet Up

If you're attending the ASCD conference, join us at the #ASCD12 Tweet Up—an in-person gathering of Twitter users—at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, 2012, for free appetizers and raffle prizes. It's a great way to connect with ASCD authors, ASCD staff, and fellow @ASCD followers. The tweet up will take place at the Field House, a sports bar located inside the Philadelphia Convention Center at 1150 Filbert Street.
For additional details, visit www.twtvite.com/ASCD12tweetup. Don't forget to use the annual conference hashtag, #ASCD12.
