Volunteer bloggers wanted for SIO conference

SRI Monitor is looking for volunteer bloggers to write previews and on-site articles about this year’s Social Investment Organization conference, to be held in Victoria from June 20-22.

The theme of this year’s conference is Creating Value, Making a Difference. Topics up for discussion include SRI branding, the future of energy in Canada, renewable energy investment, the Alberta oil sands, corporate governance, conflict minerals and new technology as well as impact investing.

Guest speakers and panelists include Hazel Henderson, Stephen Griggs, Robert Bateman, Bob Monks, Gord Lambert, Nancy McHarg and Bob Walker.

The idea is simple – pick a speaker or a session you'd like to write about and produce a short article (250-400 words). Don't have much writing experience? Not to worry, we'll give you some basic training and walk you through the process. Video blogs are also welcome.

The articles will be published before and during the conference, and distributed on SRI Monitor, the SIO's e-mail Listserve and the SIO website.

This is the second year SRI Monitor and the SIO have worked together on conference-related social media. In 2010, SRI Monitor posted eight pre-conferences articles and ten articles during the conference itself. We also collaborated on a conference-focused twitter feed.

If you'd like to take part as a blogger or if you are interested in distributing the content on your website, please contact social media coordinator Doug Watt at dwatt11@gmail.com.
