I am excited to be attending my second Catholic New Media Conference in Dallas/Ft. Worth from August 28-31. Last Year I went to the 4th Annual CNMC in Kansas City, and had a great experience meeting people from SQPN, and many other wonderful new media personalities and producers. The theme of the 2012 Catholic New Media Conference is Marketing Your Message.
The 5th Annual CNMC is now even a bigger event as it combines with the Catholic Writers Guild and the Catholic Marketing Network. The conference will have over 1,000 faithful Catholics from around the globe engaged in prayer, thought, and discussions about the latest in new media and traditional media. It is even more exciting with the addition of many Catholic authors and products. Here is a list of all the exhibitors in the convention hall. Following is a video from last year’s Catholic Marketing Network Convention:
If you are unable to attend the CNMC offers a Virtual Ticket for the first time. They are making audio recordings of all of the speakers and will have additional interviews for listening at your leisure. You can also follow the Twitter Feed during the conference at #CNMC12.
I am excited to be launching our new non-profit ministry, Catholic Web Services, at the CNMC. We have been hard at work to develop a unique service to Catholic Webmasters, with great resources and interactive forum to support parishes, schools, and organizations to have better websites. Our Guardian Angel service provides training and support to parish webmasters using video conferencing with screen sharing. Guardian Angel service will also provide updates and support when a webmaster is unavailable. Please ask your clergy and volunteer webmasters to become a member of our FREE forum, newsletter, and blogs.
I will also be volunteering as an Ambassador for Word On Fire Ministry. I have been priviledged to work with the great staff at WOF. This past year I organized a community viewing of The Catholicism Series at my parish, and it met with super success.
I will be writing a lot more upon my return in this blog and the Catholic Web Services blog. Please come back to read about my experiences, and I’ll be sharing what I learned. Your comments are welcome!
