Amazing conference ticket giveaway: Melbourne next week

I was very excited about attending the Communities in Control conference next Monday and Tuesday in Melbourne, they have fantastic topics and speakers and frankly the idea of switched on, proactive communities is one of the most exciting untapped resources I see for the future Australian policies.

Unfortunately I can no longer attend, so I’m giving away my paid registration to the first email I get in from someone willing to take it!
