Networking Live!
On our way back from Glove Life Field, we will stop at Texas Live! for dinner.  Instead of our usual restaurant romp, this year everyone will be able to go to the restaurant of their choice.  None take reservations and there is a way to sit centrally with your group even if you get food from different outlets.  For those of you who want something quieter, the hotel has an excellent restaurant.

The Surprising Science of Community Input: What’s Helpful? What’s Useless? What’s Dangerous?

For government communicators, public input “data” comes from many channels and is valuable in decision making. But how do you know which data is needed for which decisions? Which channels are good for which data? What makes data unrepresentative or even dangerous? Or maybe, what’s the point of it all? In this interactive and entertaining presentation, you’ll get these answers and more from data expert Kevin Lyons. Sure, you’ll get useful frameworks and helpful facts, but you’ll also learn how to ignore people with scientific precision – its all part of knowing how to better manage the input you have and get the data you need.

Speaker: Kevin Lyons, Founder and CEO, FlashVote
